Front Ħarsien ODZ and MDA discuss environmental challenges
In a meeting held between Front Ħarsien ODZ and Malta Developers’ Association, environmental challenges related to ODZ development were discussed.
Front said: “Both our organizations have recently expressed concern on the Paceville master plan, and particularly on land reclamation. Front is highly concerned about the proposed land reclamation for apartment and hotel purposes near a marine protected area”.
“Front also insists that before the Paceville master plan proceeds, a national master plan is required, so as to evaluate Malta’s carrying capacity and sustainability challenges. We are also calling for publication of all correspondence received by Government and the PA on the matter”.
Front Ħarsien ODZ also referred to Government’s plans for including ODZ land in local plan amendments.
“ODZ land should not be used as a political tool to win votes. We believe that proper rationalization would prioritize the regeneration of run-down areas, rather than further encroachments on ODZ land”.
Front Ħarsien ODZ was represented by Monique Agius, Colette Sciberras, Michael Briguglio and Charlot Cassar.
