The fundamental principle of Comporta Utopia is to allow the creation of an autonomous and resilient economy in this territory, anchored in an ecological and social approach that responds to the critical issues of the present and the future.
Our offer Comporta Utopia, led by the company Victor Broglie, in consortium with the GAC and the BCC Group, presents a tourism development project based on a model of low urban density focused on the environmental and social demands and in the fight against speculative construction.
The municipal authorities have authorized a 639,000 m² urban development plan in the Comporta Dunes and Comporta Links tourist development areas (ADT), allowing the construction of hotel units that house almost 4000 rooms, villas and apartments (check Problems).
However, the Comporta Utopia project commits itself on making use of only 25.2% of the total area available for construction and to build only 16.1% of accommodation, taking into account the initial plan foreseen by HdC (see table below) .
The Comporta Utopia project will not use all the built-up area, authorized by the municipal authorities, as this would have a huge impact on the integrity of the territory, however, in the case of Comporta Dunes, it will have to assume the infrastructure already built.
Comporta Utopia advocates a development from the production of low carbon. It will not go forward with more roads in order to protect the natural ecosystem.
And it plans to allocate construction plans to local companies in order to ensure a broadly sustainable project.
In line with global challenges in terms of agriculture, food and health, the 7 centers proposed by Comporta Utopia, focused on the sustainable development of the territory, will capitalize on new opportunities, create a ceaseless activity during the 365 days of the year, optimize job creation and reinforce the identity of the territory, in order to make Comporta a world example of ecological economy.
The Comporta region have the potential for an increase in the representativeness of organic agriculture production, which currently only covers 7.8% of total production.
The project Comporta Utopia wants to create in the region a laboratory of ecological production, biodiversity and culture that will serve as an example to the world from the development of seven centers.
We believe that it is Portugal’s responsibility to have a national project to rebuild Comporta, guaranteeing the preservation of the unique habitat characteristics of the place and at the same time leveraging the territory’s economy.
Comporta Utopia proposes to create in Comporta a paradigmatic model in respect for the biodiversity and richness of the ecosystems that can be replicated to other regions.
The seven centers also aim to meet the United Nations’ 17 sustainable development goals (ODS) (see table below).
