Alternattiva Demokratika welcome Wied Incita development permit's refusal

The Planning Directorate had previously recommended the refusal of an application for the construction of industrial storage facilities, shops and other buildings in the valley's quarries, which are themselves, already subject to enforcement orders.

Green party Alternattiva Demokratika (AD) has expressed its satisfaction at the Planning Authority's decision to refuse a permit for the construction of commercial buildings in Wied Incita, Attard.

Earlier this week, the Authority's Planning Directorate had recommended the refusal of the application for the construction of industrial storage facilities, shops and other buildings in the valley's quarries – themselves already subject to enforcement orders.

“It is satisfying to see that after years of work, the Planning Authority is affirming that Wied Incita needs to be protected and that there is no place for an industrial zone in the valley,” AD local councillor Ralph Cassar said in a statement issued this afternoon.

“It is encouraging to see the Authority insist that this development is incompatible with a rural zone and a valley.” Cassar said he will continue to push for the rehabilitation of the existing quarries.
AD deputy Chairman Carmel Cacopardo said that the detailed report from the Planning Directorate explains the technical, environmental and planning reasons for refusing the project at length and in detail.

“Alternattiva Demokratika is satisfied, ” Cacopardo concluded," that our efforts for the residents of Attard are bearing fruit.”
