Shared management of urban beaches reaches one hundred accession mark

Union Heritage

With the transfer of management, the Union allows municipalities to earn income, provided they supervise and preserve the space

Of the 295 municipalities that have urban maritime beaches, 100 of them have expressed interest in joining the shared management of the beaches with the Union through the Beach Management Agreement (TAGP) . Of these 100, 59 have already been completed, with the approval of the term and publication in the Official Gazette.

TAGP transfers to the municipality the management of the maritime beaches of its territory, including its economic exploitation. With this, the Union allows the municipalities to keep the patrimonial revenues collected on both the boardwalks and the sand strips, but obliges them to strictly comply with the criteria of environmental, urbanization and inspection.

“It's a win-win game,” says Fernando Bispo, head of the Union's Coordination and Governance Secretariat of the Ministry of Economy (SPU / ME). "The Union multiplies its number of inspectors and municipalities have legal certainty to manage and do justice to the receipt of equity income," he adds.

As detailed by Reinaldo Redorat, technician of the Beach Management Center of SPU / ME, “all events that the municipalities authorize on the beaches and boardwalks, whether for street vendors, kiosks, restaurants, carnival parties, New Year's Eve, weddings, parades, start generating revenue for them, municipalities ".

Edge of 20 thousand kilometers

By constitutional definition, the border is the property of the Union and the State is responsible for the supervision and management of this space. However, when analyzed with all its geographical features, the Brazilian coast exceeds 20 thousand kilometers and the challenges of managing this territory are as great as its size.

“From the formalization of the term, we can better support the municipalities and enable them to supervise. Then we will have an exponential increase in the number of inspectors ”, explained André Nunes, general coordinator of Buildings, Projects and Works of SPU / ME.

How to join

TAGP membership must be made through the internet. The municipality signs the standard term and submits the necessary documentation to SPU / ME. Once the documentation has been reviewed and approved, the term is ratified by the Secretary of Coordination and Governance of the Union's Heritage and published in the Federal Official Gazette. subject area of ​​the contract.

In return, municipalities should submit the Annual Beach Management Report . In the document, municipal managers answer questions about beach management, such as the existence and identification of a shore management committee.
