Front Harsien ODZ commends Siggiewi local council stance

Front Ħarsien ODZ commends the stance of the Siggiewi local council against the development of a motor sport racetrack on an ODZ site known as San Niklaw close to Dar tal-Providenza.

We are against any development on any non committed ODZ site irrespective of the location proposed and we reiterate our call on the government to exclude any proposals on undeveloped ODZ land in its call for expression of interest.

The Front reiterated its stance that a call for expression of interest should not have been issued in the absence of a studies on the environmental sustainability of such a huge project-the size of 100 football pitches- in a small island like Malta.

But if the government remains obstinate in issuing this call, the Front insists that all documents related to this call for expressions should be published in full to ensure maximum transparency.

The Front also called on other local councils where ODZ land may be earmarked for the development of a racetrack to join the Siggiewi local council in declaring their opposition to such developments.

Front Ħarsien ODZ jappoġġja lill-Kunsill tas-Siġġiewi

Front Ħarsien ODZ jappoġġja l-pożizzjoni tal-Kunsill tas-Siġġiewi kontra l-iżvilupp ta’ korsa tal-Motor Sports f’żona barra l-konfini ta’ żvilupp magħrufa bħala San Niklaw fil-viċininanzi tad- Dar tal-Providenza

Il-Front huwa kontra kull żvilupp f’siti mhux żviluppati barra miż-żona ta’ l-iżvilupp irrispettivament minn fejn jiġu proposti u jtenni l-appell tiegħu lill-gvern biex jeskludi kull proposta li tinkludi artijiet bħal dawn mis-sejħa għal espressjoni ta’ interess.

Il- Front itenni il-pożizzjoni tiegħu li l-gvern ma kellux joħroġ din is-sejħa għal espressjoni ta’ interess fl-assenza ta’ studji dwar is-sostenibilita ambjentali ta’ żvilupp daqsekk massiv (kbir daqs mitt grawnd tal-futbol) f’pajjiż żgħir daqs Malta.

Imma jekk il-gvern behsiebu jibqa għaddej bħal romblu, il-Front jinsisti lid-dokumenti relatati ma’ din is-sejħa għal espressjoni ta’ interess ikunu pubblici biex jiżgura trasparenza sħiħa. Il-Front isejjaħ lil kunsilli lokali oħra fejn art ODZ tista’ tiġi identifikata għal żvilupp simili biex jingħaqdu mal-kunsill tas-Siggiewi fl-oppożizzjoni għal dan it-tip ta’ żvilupp insostenibli.
