What I find interesting is that the government whilst claiming to be concerned about the environment seem to look the other way when it comes to the pollution caused by all these construction projects – from noise, air, and waste.
Many people are just sick and tired of it - which is why the GSLP put a hold on the Victoria Keys project for awhile (possibly to help win the election). And as John Pine pointed out, seems like the GSLP lied about Rosia Bay too.
Every new construction project is also an environmental nightmare when it comes to the rubbish produced.
Where does recycling and rubbish from the UK go?
2019 Article – How much waste does the UK produce?
In 2016, the UK generated 222.9 million tonnes of waste, up 4% from 2014.
England was responsible for 85% of the total.
Construction and demolition generates the most - about 136 million tonnes a year. Mineral waste accounts for 36% of the total and includes anything that's left over from mining or quarrying, and can't be used again.
Construction makes up the the majority of rubbish, as indicated by the purple colour.
How likely is this the same scenario in Gibraltar?
And how are all these luxury housing for? It's not the locals. I don't think they plan to raise families in efficiencies and 1 bedroom apartments.
There is a historical reason to preserve Rosia Bay. There is an environmental reason to preserve Rosia Bay.
If they aren't going to build housing for Gibraltarians, then let Rosia Bay be for all Gibraltarians; and let the government keep its promise of making a recreational facility. In the hot months, everyone is gadding about hanging out near the water, not holdup in their homes.
