Ecologists in Action has announced details of the arguments they have presented against the Environmental Impact Study prepared by the Building company intending to urbanize Cala Mosca, the last undeveloped coastal area of the Orihuela Costa.
The organization bases its opposition to the development of the project on a number of points including what it considers to be an erroneous assessment of the impacts of the project on protected species of fauna and flora, la cabeza de gato y la tudorella mauretánica.
It also says that the areas where these endangered species are dedicated to green and recreational areas would be "inconsistent with the conservation objective 'and the location of pedestrian paths and recreational areas.
The environmentalists conclude that there are too many flaws in the plan submitted by the developer and have therefore called for a Strategic Environmental Assessment of the plan so that the deficiencies can be properly identified.
Meanwhile, following on from the article published in last week's edition of The Leader ‘Support For Cala Mosca Revived', whilst applauding the actions of CLARO regarding their petition, one reader, Malcolm Drew, was critical of the lack of information held by staff in the Orihuela Costa Town Hall. He wrote “I was delighted to read that there is growing support for the protection of Cala Mosca.
However, two more signatures could have been added to the petition if somebody at the Orihuela Costa Town Hall had known anything about it when I called in there on the morning of the 11th August in accordance with C.L.A.RO's submission instructions as specified in local newspapers.
A woman at the right hand side reception desk looked mystified when she perused our completed petition form and also conferred with a colleague. She then directed me to the tourist Office where the woman there promptly directed me back to the reception desk! I gave up and left. This sort of thing has happened to me before at the town hall so it is probably a common occurrence. All the more reason for C.L.A.R.O. to have ensured this would not happen.”
Let's all hope that there were not too many other unsuccessful petitioners who suffered the same Bureaucratic outcome.Filed under: http://www.theleader.info/article/44649/
