MEPA Board should refuse Hondoq development – AD

Alternattiva Demokratika – The Green Party urged the MEPA Board to endorse the recommendations of the Environment Planning Directorate and refuse the proposed development at Hondoq ir-Rummien, Gozo.

Michael Briguglio, AD Chairperson, said: “We expect the MEPA Board to refuse the proposed development of a yacht marina and tourist village in Hondoq ir-Rummien, and thus close the issue once and for all. Such development will ruin the bay and cause severe environmental damage. Together with NGOs and Moviment Harsien Hondoq, Alternattiva Demokratika is the only political party which has been opposing the development ever since it was proposed. Our objections are now being endorsed by the Environment Planning Directorate, which we welcome. We also welcome proposals to embellish the beach and the area for the benefit of the general public”.

Il-Bord tal-MEPA ghandha tirrifjuta l-izvilupp tal-Hondoq – AD

L-Alternattiva Demokratika hegget lill-Bord tal-MEPA tapprova r-rakomandazzjonijiet ta’ l-Environment Planning Directorate, u tirrifjuta l-izvilupp propost f’Hondoq ir-Rummien, Ghawdex.

Michael Briguglio, Chairperson ta’ l-AD, qal: “Nistennew li l-Bord tal-MEPA jirrifjuta l-izvilupp propost ghall-marina tal-jottijiet u villagg turistiku f’Hondoq ir-Rummien, u b’hekk tinghalaq darba ghal dejjem il-kwistjoni. Dan l-izvilupp ser ihassar il-bajja, u jikkawza hsara ambjentali severa. Flimkien ma’ NGOs u l-Moviment Harsien Hondoq, l-Alternattiva Demokratika huwa l-uniku partit li ilu jopponi dan l-izvilupp minn meta gie propost. Issa, l-oggezzjonijiet taghna qed jigu approvati mill-Environment Planning Directorate, u l-AD tilqa’ din l-approvazzjoni. L-AD tilqa’ ukoll il-proposti sabiex tissebbah il-bajja u z-zona ghall-beneficcju tal-pubbliku.”
