Abstract: One appreciates last month's missive by the Gozo Bishop in a pastoral letter that the Church is committed to safeguarding the environmental heritage of the island. However, it is difficult to reconcile such a statement with the Bishop's complaint in the same letter that the Gozo Diocese was being discriminated against by MEPA when it came to development permits and when the diocese is repeatedly applying for permits within ODZ areas. Hence, the sacrosanct question: what exactly does the environmental heritage the bishop is referring to constitute, since areas of high landscape value, ridges, ecologically sensitive sites, rural settings and fields, fruit trees and the lot are considered to be expendable?
