MEPA tariff fee structure

The Malta Developers Association has reason to believe that the new MEPA tariff applicable since July was not based on the cost incurred by MEPA for the processing of development permits even though these tariffs are a charge for the processing of these applications.

Although MEPA is one institution but it has separate directorates for its planning and its environmental responsibilities but it publishes a unified account covering all of its activities, rather than split by operational function.

The MDA firmly believes that applicants for development permits should be charged for the costs actually incurred in the processing of these permits. Moreover it needs to be satisfied that processing of these permits is being done by MEPA in an efficient manner that ensures value for their money.

In the circumstances the MDA feels it is in the public interest for your esteemed Office to carry out an audit of MEPA practices to establish:

1. The real cost of processing development permit applications and how this compares with the new tariff structure.

2. The checks that should be in place to ensure that development permit processing is carried out efficiently.
