Save Hondoq ir-Rummien
The beautiful coastal area at Hondoq ir-Rummien in Gozo is one of the few remaining tracts of open countryside left in the Maltese Islands. An area of outstanding scenic beauty, it is also a vital habitat for dwindling communities of rare plants.
Hondoq ir-Rummien, in the area stretching from the depth of the quarry and eastwards along the rocky cliffside, is now being threatened by a proposed development plan to build a five star hotel catering for 170 beds, approximately 25 Self Catering Villas, 60 Self Catering Units, 200 Multi-Ownership Residences, 731 Underground parking spaces, 10 Retail Units, 5 Dining Facilities and a marina for between 100 to 150 craft depending on the size of the vessels.
We believe that the development of Hondoq ir-Rummien will degrade the Maltese Islands as a tourist destination, not improve it.
Hondoq ir-Rummien lies outside the development zone established by the Structure Plan approved by the Maltese Parliament in 1992. We request that the Malta Environment and Planning Authority adheres to this Structure Plan and does not allow development in this area.
