MEPA to remain involved in policy formulation

The government is considering establishing time frames for the validation process of permits, some of which would be determined by the applicants.

Moreover, Mepa would remain involved in formulating planning and environmental policy, Parliamentary Secretary Mario de Marco, who is responsible for the reform, said this morning.
The proposed reform of the Malta Environment and Planning Authority is currently being debated in a national conference held as part of the consultation process.

Various stakeholders, including non-governmental organisations, Mepa employees and construction workers, are taking part. Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi is present.
Very slight changes have been made to the original reform document, the most significant one being that the proposed voluntary screening process would be given a four week term.
Those present put across their grievances, positions and opinions.
