MDA defends MEPA permits

The Malta Developers Association (MDA) refers to a press release issued by Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar and the Ramblers’ Association in which they described the recent approval by MEPA of a permit for a development in Madliena as “abusive”.
While not entering into the architectural merits of the proposed development, MDA strongly insists that MEPA permits that respect the published and legally binding zoning and planning policies of the areas for which they are issued can never be termed as “abusive” and the use of this term by the two NGOs reflects an incredible arrogance that leads them to consider any development with which they do not agree as abusive.
MDA acknowledges that individuals and organisations have a right to object to development proposals, but this right does not give them the faculty to arrogate to themselves the power to act as the final arbiters on development proposals, as the two NGOs have done in this case.
Indeed the spurious and irresponsible use of the term “abusive” is in fact an abuse of the right of the NGOs to object and disagree with any development.
