Lukanda Dwejra Ministeru Għawdex mhux involut konsultazzjoni

The Gozo Ministry was not involved in the consultation process regarding the Dwejra Project. From the documents seen by this newsroom, the Gozo Ministry was not mentioned at any time in the said documents. The Ministry has yet to confirm this information, however it failed to reply until the time of writing of this report.

Newsbook.com.mt revealed that only one proposal was submitted in a period of over four months requesting proposals in order to develop the Dwejra Heritage Park.

The proposal suggests a hotel be built in a disused quarry which is found nearby even though the site is protected and forms part of the Natura 2000 network.

Questions sent in writing by Newsbook.com.mt remained unanswered until the time of writing this report.

The iconic Azure Window collapsed on the 8th March 2017. Prime Minister Joseph Muscat had announced an international call to develop a Dwejra Heritage Park.

The call was echoed in a four minister press conference which included the former Gozo Minister Anton Refalo a day after the collapse.
