GRTU Senior Vice-President elected Chairman of MEPA Users’ Committee

Mr. Joe Tabone, Senior Vice-President of GRTU, Malta Chamber of
Small and Medium Enterprises has been elected Chairman of the Users’ Committee
representing the users of the Malta Environement and Planning
Authority.

The Members of the Committee are appointed by the Minister
responsible for MEPA on nominations made by the national organisations
represented on the Committee.

The Users’ Committee is autonomous from the
Malta Environment and Planning Authority and is responsible to the Minister to
whom it reports at least every six months. As laid down in the Development
Planning Act, the Users’ Committee supervises the general functioning of the
Authority particularly to ensure, in the interest of the general public, an
expeditious and fair process and transparency and uniformity in the Authority’s
decisions and acts. It thus monitors the running of the Authority and proposes
such changes to administrative processes and practices as it may deem
appropriate.

Entrepreneurs and business interests who have complaints on
the operations of MEPA can address their complaints to GRTU on .
The Committee however, can only take into consideration complaints that are of a
generic nature since the function of the Users’ Committee cannot be constrained
as representing another form of appeal on issues of specific nature. The GRTU
representative on the Committee will present all serious complaints to the
Committee for investigation.
