MDA President on MEPA’s Role

The Malta Developers Association refers to the press release issued by Din l-Art Ħelwa. The MDA’s President Michael Falzon denies that he described the Malta Environment and Planning Authority’s work as “collecting lizards”. Neither did he denigrate the country’s biodiversity. This can be verified by listening to the interview carried out with Mr Falzon last Tuesday on www.di-ve.com.

Mr Falzon was referring to the increase in MEPA fees and he said that, while the MDA agrees that it is applicants of development permits who should shoulder the cost of processing their applications, it was not right that these applicants should be burdened with funding other MEPA activities and initiatives that have nothing to do with the processing of applications.

The cost of these activities and initiatives, which include investigating lizards, should be borne by the state and not charged surreptitiously to applicants of development permits, whether they are developers or ordinary citizens.
