MEPA fails to take action against serious illegalities at Ramla
|Email item||Print item||
The Non-Governmental Organisation, Save Ramla, has said in a statement that “the Malta Environment and Planning Authority (MEPA) is still resisting to issue an enforcement notice with respect to serious illegalities which exists at Ramla Bay.”
“After three and a half years since the last correspondence with the Chairman of MEPA on the development project to build villas instead of Ulysses Lodge at Ramla Bay, Gozo, to-date MEPA’s sole reply was an acknowledgement. This last communication relates to illegalities that exist on the site covered by the planning applications for the said villas and that MEPA failed to take action on said illegalities,” the NGO said.
The information surfaced following details released by Save Ramla, the environmental NGO, which includes a recent letter to MEPA.
The NGO, had put forward the case for the revocation of the planning permits issued by MEPA for the development of villas instead of the Ulysses Lodge.
“Although MEPA revoked the building permits for the villas, which revocations are now confirmed by the Environment and Planning Review Tribunal, MEPA failed to issue an enforcement notice with respect to the illegalities on the site in question,” Save Ramla concluded.
