Report asks for withdrawal of Ramla permit -
Sunday, July 29, 2007

A detailed report drafted by Architect Lino Bianco on behalf of Xaghra local councillor Carmen Bajada is requesting the withdrawal of the outline planning permit for the development of villas instead of Ulysses Lodge at Ramla Bay in Gozo.

The report was submitted to the Malta Environment and Planning Authority (Mepa) last week.

Architect Bianco, an environment planning consultant, has submitted to Mepa that the planning application subject to which the outline permit was issued contained information that is “false, misleading or incorrect” in terms of Article 39A of the Development Planning Act. The report claims there are on site a number of applications and permits which were not declared in the planning application, nor consulted by Mepa during the planning process, which applications and permits were known to exist on site by the architectural practice submitting the application as the same office was involved in all past applications and permits.

The architect maintains also that half the area for the proposed complex of dwelling units, declared as “developed and disturbed land”, is not covered by a development permit.

Architect Bianco officially requested Mepa to annul the outline planning permit issued at Ramla, rendering full development planning permit for the same development proposal as null and void.
