This fishing village will replace the informal settlement called the Forum Fishing Village located on the Forum Beach. Occupants of this informal settlement, including fisher folk, commercial interests and residents, are required to vacate the beach in light of the UDC’s sale of the Forum Hotel in January 2014.
