The Gozo Tourism Association has said that it is receiving complaints from a number of its members, stating that in spite of the Summer Break Time notice issued recently, excavation works are still being carried out in the heart of the Xlendi resort.
The Association added that, “consequently, tourists staying in the neighbouring accommodation units are leaving their respective accommodation, and abruptly terminating their holiday.”
This notice details tourism areas that prohibits excavation and demolition works at constructions sites, within designated tourism areas, during the summer months.
“Although reports were filed with the competent Authorities, these works are still going on.” the GTA stated.
The Gozo Tourism Association, concluded by calling on the concerned Authorities, “to enforce and apply the Summer Break Time directive, in order to cut the nuisance and inconveniences to tourists and accommodation owners.”
