The Cyprus Greens party issued an announcement on Thursday slamming the Paphos Municipality for illegal building at Sodap beach accompanied by relevant photos.
The Paphos municipal authorities, the party states, have removed the rocks to build a canteen “behaving like a voracious business-man”, while to add insult to injury they have poured concrete over a section of the beach.
“This violates the Barcelona protocol on the protection of the Mediterranean coastal region. This has outraged locals but the Municipality is not listening.
“We have tabled the issue for discussion with the House Standing Committee on the Environment.
“The Paphos Municipality is called to answer whether a permit had been obtained before proceeding with the move, and the House also needs to hear the position of the competent departments on the matter,” the statement concluded.
