"White Rocks development should not deprive public of open spaces" - Żminijietna

Żminijietna - Voice of the Left appealed to the Government to ensure that the regeneration of White Rocks would not deprive the public of open spaces.
“Unfortunately the Government is opting for yet another exclusive development project consisting of luxury dwellings and villas, when over a third of Malta's properties are vacant, and when universally accessible open spaces are lacking. The greatest beneficiary of such development is big business”.
“Whilst we agree that it is high time that the White Rocks area is regenerated, we appeal to the Government not to approve of development projects which will result in a privatised area which denies public access. Besides, Government should ensure that the development project makes use of sustainable sources of energy. Any form of development on the natural garigue should be refused. Agricultural land and the natural environment should be protected, rather than commodified.”
