Dwejra: Crowdfunding initiative launched to appeal against developmentBirdLife Malta has just launched a “crowdfunding” initiative to collect funds which will enable them to appeal against further development in Dwejra, Gozo.

In a statement, BirdLife pointed out that this site is – a Natura 2000 site, Dark Sky Heritage Area and designated Special Protection Area under the Wild Birds Directive.

This “crowdfunding” appeal follows last week’s decision by the Environment and Planning Review Tribunal (EPRT) to overturn the Planning Authority’s refusal for further development at this site.

Fifteen organisations are supporting this initiative to collect funds to appeal this decision in court, with the aim to raise €2,000.

All those who wish to contribute to this cause may do so via direct bank transfer to:

BANK €: BOV (Bank of Valletta)

ACCOUNT NAME: BirdLife Malta

ACCOUNT NUMBER: 40010951507

      This atrocity has to stop. People are totally against this permit. How is it possible that whatever authority goes against anything that is normal and forbidden?

      Shame on them.
