Introducing Moorea's future PGEM; question-and-answer

Summary report

(in red: requests for assistance)

The presentation is made, for the most part, by Heiriti:

1 - General on the PGEM, as well as on the former (current) PGEM of 2004

13 years of operation:

    • problem of the absence of sanctions (distribution of powers ...): no minutes have been established in 13 years, and therefore no sanctions for non-compliance ...
    • complexity of procedures
    • no follow-up indicators
    • no long-term vision
    • no specific financial and human resources
    • population growth: in particular urbanization and artificialization of the coastline

2018 MGEM Goals:

    • increase its efficiency

2 - History of the current process:

    • 2014: establishing the roadmap, with the participation of many stakeholders
    • 2015: Launch of the review
    • 2016: Local Commission (CLEM): drafting of the PGEM revisions; participation of 3 representatives of "nautical activities"
    • First semester: information from the local population
    • 2017: negotiations/synthesis (compromise on non-consensus points)
    • Finalization by obtaining positive opinion from the Planning Commission

3 - Goals of the new PGEM:

    1. - access to the sea for all
    2. - sustainable water activities
    3. - better distribute responsibilities/skills among the various authorities (Country, Municipalities, Police/Gendarmerie, etc.)
    4. - change in the composition of the Standing Committee (increase in the number of members, including 5 members of nautical activities)note: these 5 members would already be appointed, without the AVP having been consulted
    5. - setting up an official manager (which would be the municipality of Moorea)
    6. - zoning (BY the local population and FOR the population)
    7. - publication of 4 regulatory maps: fishing-related activities, protected areas, nautical activities, ...
    8. - 21 access to the sea (and land ...), 27 dive sites, 3 areas for ocean liners, 2 long-term moorings, 7 short-term moorings, etc.
    9. The quota of boats would be a request from the Minister of Tourism, not the municipality of Moorea; possible derogations for "events"; it is the Standing Committee that will define the quotas and durations of attendance.
    10. 4 - Various points:- Wetting: banned everywhere in principle at night (except long-term areas and marinas)- Organized moorings: possible onshore services; royalties; annual quotas, which may change; but how to manage (how to know if a mooring is "full" before going), and by whom (the sailboats themselves)? Presentation of a table of moorings/quotas, which would suggest that only 40 boats could be present in Moorea at night- Public inquiry to come: duration 2 months; unlikely on the internet; and very unlikely the WE- Marina de Vaiare: compliance before any extension

      - Comment: Black water treatment plant envisaged in Vaiare (south-east of Moorea) not logically and economically compatible with most of the anchorages to the north

5 - Future:

    • July August 2018: adoption of the revised EMPP (following the favourable opinion of the Planning Commission) in the City Council
    • September October 2018: public inquiry
    • November 2018: Commissioner-Investigator's summary report
    • …. CLEM 6: Revised PGEM
    • …. Council of Ministers for validation (ministerial decree)

6 - Miscellaneous questions

    1. - proposal for seasonal quotas (international transumance, large WE, etc.); buoys would be reserved for charters... ; Are there reliable statistics on the actual occupancy of moorings over time (because the "saturation" of some moorings seems to be limited to a few specific times of the year)? Debates on the different quotas proposed by implementations.
    2. - Difficult access to land; secure access request (pontoons) with minimum services (water, garbage cans, ...)
    3. - Comment: economic non-viability of a possible private boating service provider on each mooring area if the number of boats is too low ...
    4. - Comments: a higher quota of boats does not mean increased pollution at the same time; similarly, an increased quota of boats does not mean a parallel reduction of other water activities ...
    5. - Request: setting up a quota timetable; Online;
    6. - Request: possibility of delegation of services to a private company?
    7. - Request: complexity of access to PGEM texts and map
    8. - The buoys would be, for their maintenance, the responsibility of the Country ...
    9. - Comments: responsibilities in case of mooring failure (compulsory) (and paying)?
    10. - Comment: low availability of relief in Moorea
    11. - Comment: tender for the maintenance of buoys; money exists (Europe, High Commission, Ministry of Tourism, ...), you only have to bother to build a grant file ...
