Abstract: About two weeks ago, TV news bulletins showed schoolchildren planting geranium plants and families strolling leisurely along the recently completed 'promenade' over Wied Babu. The reporters, inadvertently or not, made no mention in their footage of the fact that works on site started off with no permits in hand and that permit conditions were breached repeatedly during the works and that such infringements were so glaring that the Audit Office's report on the issue made it to MEPA's Annual Report: "The Works Division failed to follow an approved permit for the upgrading walkway at Wied Babu, Zurrieq, which permit should not have been issued by MEPA in the first place, since in breach of the Habitats Directive" (p. 33).
