Yesterday during his visit to Gozo, the Labour Leader Joseph Muscat gave details of a proposal for the abandoned desalination plant at Hondoq.
The proposed project recommends that the plant should be dismantled, with recreational facilities built there to replace it for the enjoyment of the people of Qala. Clint Camilleri, who is an architect and Labour candidate for the upcoming Local Council elections, said that the facilities could include an indoor swimming pool, a fitness centre, public toilets, changing rooms with first aid facilities and a restaurant and cafeteria.
“The buildings would be designed and constructed in such a way as to make them harmonise with the natural habitat of the bay. The design would also ensure that the highest environmental standards are met, making use of recycled material, recycled aggregate, recycled concrete, geo-thermal energy and photovoltaic panels for energy,” the Labour Leader said.
Dr Muscat concluded by saying that “the project would create jobs, improve the environment, as well as enhance the area. The project would be carried out with the full consultation of the Qala residents.”
