PRESS RELEASE: The case of the development of villas at Ramla Bay, Gozo:The technical reports of Architect Bianco published
The Save Ramla Committee led by Ms Carmen Bajada, a resident and Xaghra local councillor, has made available on its website the unedited copies of technical reports of Architect Lino Bianco which were submitted to the Malta Environment and Planning Authority (MEPA) nearly three weeks ago.

These reports include proof that the outline permit was issued on “false, misleading or incorrect” information and that the permitted development will be encroaching on a public right of way. The reports call on MEPA to revoke and annul both the outline and the full permit.

Yesterday MEPA issued a brief statement saying that it is currently assessing the request for the revocation and annulment of the Ramla l-Hamra development permits in terms of Article 39A of the Development Planning Act.

Save Ramla Committee notes that, following submissions of reports of Architect Bianco, MEPA refrained from sending the full permit and thus effectively no construction works may commence on site. On revoking the outline permit, the full permit will be rendered null and void, hence permanently halting the destruction of Ramla.
