WWF Greece criticizes unchecked construction works

The promotion of top investments, mainly in the tourism industry of Greece, has kept environmental fears on the back burner, the World Wildlife Fund’s local branch started in a report that was released Monday that slammed the government for duplicated violations of the environmental rules.
Unveiled at the Athens headquarters of the conservation organization, the yearly research of the rollback in Greece’s environmental lawmaking warned regarding the sequel of ungoverned construction works as well as and the legalization of illegally made properties even in places that are ecologically sensitive. The report, which is now in its tenth year, also criticized ministries for forcing legislation tailored to the requirements of specific business interests.
WWF Greece’s environmental policy coordinator Theodota Nantsou told that the legalization of illegal buildings, even in protected regions like Schinias National Park, and the promotion of tourism units in areas like Kyparisia, a nesting place for the Caretta caretta sea turtle, are characteristic of the government’s development model.
Greece’s conservative guided coalition came under fire very recently for tabling legislation for a brand new zoning plan after summer sessions of the Parliament started and for subsequently passing a brand new forestry bill in July letting more scope for construction in forested regions.
Dimitris Karavellas, the director of WWF Greece, told that in crisis-hit Greece a new development plan with no future is being readied from old materials. They see the country as a vessel for endless new building and other intensive activity.
