on again on again

The eyesore caused by a large building under construction at scenic Dwejra has still not been removed, and no one has assumed responsibility for it.

MEPA stopped the project in March but nothing has happened since.

The Gozo Ministry and San Lawrenz Council need to realise that quality tourists do not visit Gozo to see a concrete monster in a place of natural beauty. It is not enough to promote Gozo and distribute pictures of the Azure window, only for tourists to then be surprised by such a state of abandon and irregularities when they visit the place.

As I stated earlier, around Dwejra alone, some 80 enforcement notices have been issued, for anything from illegal rooms to boathouse extensions, illegal quarries and dumping sites and even an extension of the chapel, also without a permit. READ BY CLICKING HERE.

Hope that our plea will not be part of the Echo in Gozo but part of Eco-Gozo.

Thank you for your support in this cause.
