Threatened countryside, an eyesore to everybody – Readers Letter
|Email item||Print item||
“Why should a walk in the countryside meant to rest one’s mind, be more stressful by seeing such an awful view, an eyesore to everybody, locals and tourists alike.
That besides being dangerous for children especially with sharp, rusted, jutting metal pieces around. Nadur Local Council and the Ministry for Gozo, please take note!
Why haven’t Green Wardens been engaged, trained to control and if necessary fine people, who vandalise and dump their waste in the countryside.
The area in front of Nadur’s old cemetery entails a very lovely landscape but this ‘scene’ simply ruins it.
Unfortunately cleanups tend to be futile since waste seems to regather in the same areas by magic. Let’s be more realistic and act to protect the lovely outdoors Gozo is blessed with before the natural habitat of certain local species is destroyed and it is too late to enjoy.”
