Conserve Ramla (letters) -
Carmen Studley, Xaghra.

I do hope the government will interfere with the Ramla permit and help to solve the more important problems in that area.

Why don't they help to fix the "Turnciera", the Roman villa, before the stones start falling and possibly injure somebody. There are also the Roman steps leading from Ramla to Calypso that have been cleaned up and will now belong to the developer.

Keep the place clean and have a warden or police officer in summer to ensure boats do not keep coming past the buoys and endangering swimmers. Finally, we need a temporary walkway of planks for the people with mobility problems to use and allow them access to our lovely beach.

This is what the locals and the tourists want, not more building sites destroying our natural habitat.

Mary Mallia, Qormi.

Had the present Green NGOs that are now protesting against any new development and redevelopment existed way back in time, we would have been deprived of discovering Ggantija, Hagar Qim and Mnajdra. La Sengle would not have built Senglea and to protect the flora and fauna on Mount Sciberras, La Valette would not have built Valletta. And by the way we all know there are Roman ruins buried in the sands of Ramla l-Hamra.
