PROJECTS » Environment Planning & Management

The Malta Environment and Planning Authority (MEPA) is the competent authority which regulates urban planning and assesses compliance to environmental legislation. Proposed infrastructural projects require development permits depending on function, size and location. As relevant, the development permitting mechanism will include any assessments/evaluations as may be required to address environmental issues.

In accordance with the European Environmental Directives, development proposals are screened against established criteria to determine whether mandatory formal assessments such as Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Appropriate Assessment (AA) are required.

Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEA) evaluate the environmental considerations arising from national/local strategic plans or programmes. Following a change in the local SEA Regulations in 2010, it is the responsibility of the government and public entities to determine whether a SEA is required for their own plans and programmes (PPs) in accordance with the provisions of Legal Notice 497 of 2010.
