The Malta Developers Association (MDA), in conjunction with the Malta Environment and Planning Authority (MEPA) and the Kamra tal-Periti (KTP), held a successful information session on the Development Control Design Policy, Guidance and Standards 2015 (DC2015) at the Dolmen Hotel, Qawra, on Tuesday, 1 December, 2015.

The speakers at the information session were: MEPA Chairman Perit Vincent Cassar, Kamra tal-Periti President Perit Christopher Mintoff, MDA President Sandro Chetcuti, MEPA CEO Johann Buttigieg, and Perit Victor Sladden from MEPA, who led the DC2015 initiative.
