An Environmental Appraisal was carried out for a residence in the Fomm ir-Rih area as a supplement to the planning application. The application would result in the regeneration of a rural area while ensuring public access to the coast in line with MEPA policy.
The report indicated measures to safeguard the visual impact of the developments and also the ecological integrity of the area. The appraisal pointed out the need for regular maintenance in order to keep up the area’s standard. Special attention was given to the type of species to be removed, safeguarded or planted.
