Introducing the launch of this new online service Mepa CEO, Dr Ian Stafrace said, "This new service is another milestone for the Authority. The Mepa Reform was always about radically improving efficiency and the interface between the Authority, its customers and the public. This project has been made possible, ever since we introduced the practice amongst architects, that all planning applications have to be submitted electronically."
The only requirement is an internet connection and an e-ID registration, which can be obtained by any Maltese citizen and is an easy, straightforward procedure. All details of the proposed development will be included in the online version of the planning application document, enabling the public to analyse any proposed development in detail, ensuring a more transparent and efficient service offered by MEPA. For a document to be viewed online it would have had to be submitted after 31st May 2012.
The public can also view all correspondence between MEPA and its consultees online, these include proposed plans of elevations and sections and any objections that are registered against the proposed development.
