Ramla.jpegWirt Ghawdex, the Gozo Heritage Society has joined other NGO’s in condemning the manner in which permits for development in such sensitive areas as Ramla Bay in Gozo are being issued.

The NGO said that past mistakes should not have been aggravated by extending the foot-print of the new development beyond the area already disturbed in an otherwise pristine bay. They went on to say that it is incomprehensible how an Environment Impact Assessment was deemed unnecessary for a site of such natural and ecological beauty.

Wirt Ghawdex concluded by saying that it was a deplorable fact that the Superintendence of Cultural Heritage was completely ignored, when it is common knowledge that the area is replete with archaeological remains. They went on to point out that this highlights the urgent need for amendments to the Cultural Heritage Act to make the national watchdog of our country’s patrimony much more effective.
