Nadur Council not consulted about the work at San BlasThe Nadur Local Council has said in a statement that it “had in no way been consulted by the Government before work started with machinery in San Blas Bay, at the height of summer and when hundreds of people were using the beach for swimming.”

The Council said that it only heard of the works being carried out after complaints started coming into the Council’s office from residents and those who used the beach, saying they were “disgusted with the way the work was being done.”

“It is regrettable that during these works boulders, which had been a part of the environment were moved from their positions and either put into the sea, or at the edge of the beach.” The Council asked “Why there was a need to move a rock that had always been in that spot with heavy machinery?”

The Council said that San Blas beach lies within the boundaries of the Nadur Local Council and it has for years “always paid particular attention to this beach to ensure that any works that need to be undertaken is done without the use of heavy machinery.”

“This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the islands and has been voted more than once as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean in a foreign magazine,” the Council said.

The Local Council pointed out “that if the authorities believe in the autonomy of local councils, then at least they should consulte with and advise the Local Council when and where they will be carrying out any works.”

The Nadur Local Council concluded by saying that “this is not the first case in recent months where the Central Government has carried out works without informing the Local Council about what would be taking place within its boundaries.”
