Nature Trust – FEE Malta welcomes the decision taken by the PA appeals Board not to give the green light to further construction - an old people’s home – in Wied Ghomor valley. Such a development, had it gone ahead, would have dealt a fatal hatchet blow to yet another green corridor connecting to the rest of Malta’s green areas. Such corridors are important for our already endangered biodiversity and the construction of yet another development would have further threatened their survival.
NT- FEE Malta hopes that this is just the first sign that the PA is truly moving towards sustainable development and the protection of our natural heritage from unsustainable development projects
The eNGO also welcomes the position taken by the Minister of Environment to grant Wied Ghomor protection from further development. The organisation believes that all valleys in our Islands should be protected both for their ecological value and also for their role in water conservation.
