Din l-Art Helwa welcomes the announcement by Minister Jose Herrera on the setting up of Ambjent Malta which he said is to coordinate and support efforts related to the protection of environmental heritage.
Din l-Art Helwa is keen to see the detail of this proposed organization, what its specific objectives are and how it is to achieve these ends. Din l-Art Helwa is keen to see the Government take the initiative in seriously protecting the environment especially Outside Development Zones (ODZ areas), which have been consistently targeted by speculators for development especially in view of the relaxation of planning regulations in this area.
Din L-Art Helwa believes that the setting up of national parks would ensure that the most important areas of our natural landscapes can be effectively protected and urges the Minister to have this objective as part of Ambjent Malta’s brief
