Żminijietna – Voice of the Left supports the stand being taken by the Fgura Mayor Byrone Camilleri (PL) against the proposed development of a supermarket, on a former scrapyard in Fgura.
Żminijietna added that “with regards to the local plan, the plan stipulates that any development of the site should include recreational facilities in the form of public urban open spaces, social and community facilities as well as residential and commercial/retail development”.  

Thus Żminijietna - Voice of the Left appeals MEPA to abide by it's own policies and respect the rationality behind the local plan approved in 2006.
