FAA decries government foot-dragging over Wied Għomor

The environmental NGO, Flimkien Għal Ambjent Aħjar, FAA, accused the Government of dragging its feet over Wied Għomor. In a statement the eNGO decried the fact that controversial development permits in the valley are processed faster than the application to declare Wied Għomor as public domain. Such a status would ensure that the valley would be protected.

The eNGO dismissed the €3 milllion study on the social determinants of health to see how lifestyles affect health commissioned by the Health Ministry, saying that residents were forced to lead unhealthy lifestyles because of government policies.
