Marsaxlokk Development Plan should be withdrawn - Zminijietna

Żminijietna urges MEPA to withdraw proposed development plan in Marsaxlokk.
Żminijietna - Voice of the Left called upon MEPA to withdraw the proposed development plan in the Marsaxlokk inner harbour area. The area is largely outside the development zone, ecologically sensitive and of a high landscape value.
“In fact the agricultural land earmarked for development is of a high importance, as it serves as a buffer zone to separate Fort Delimara from the village of Marsaxlokk”
Żminijietna insists that “MEPA should not hide behind this proposal to introduce amendments in the local plan to give way for this development. On the contrary MEPA should ensure that planning regulations regarding ODZ should be strengthened and enforced. The area includes also a natural coastal wetland which serves as a nature reserve, known as ‘Il-Magħluq’.
“Another proposal for a development in an ODZ area is the one in the locality of Pembroke. The site proposed for further development falls under a Natura 2000 protected areas”.
