LET’S STOP THE DEVASTATION AND DEGRADATION OF PRTLOG
- WE ARE AGAINST ALL FAVORITISM THAT LOCAL AUTHORITIES HAVE TOWARDS CURRENT OR POTENTIAL INVESTORS – after a significant number of people that owned undeveloped and otherwise unbuildable properties in Prtlog, sold their properties to a common buyer, a decision has been put forth overturning all previous bans on development thus allowing the investor to amount larger areas and allowing development on previously non buildable surfaces. Ten years ago, the residents of Prtlog were told that no future developmental plans would be made as it was considered a “construction free”, natural and protected area of natural wealth. This initial promise that has been made to the people of Prtlog and after they have sold of their properties for lesser value, has now years later been blatantly disregarded and as a result of the restructure, it has also escalated the monetary value of the same properties.
- WE REQUEST A TRANSPARENT APPROACH BY THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES – the opposing town councilors have requested verbal copies of all the meetings and activities which have taken place with the investors but have never received them. A figure of authority that is not transparent DOES NOT DESERVE THE TRUST OF THE PEOPLE, all forms of secrecy in the ambient of public administration are in stark contrast with the interests of the community.
- WE SEEK PROPER DEVELOPMENTAL PLANS – the Town of Labin has not elaborated on one of the fundamental points of the realization and management of their SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT plan, i.e. the capacity for implementing such development without negatively impacting the quality of life of the local residents. We do not want our coast to be overly developed. Our beaches are already disappearing and access to such areas is largely impeded by man made obstacles (ramps).
- WE WANT TO CONSERVE THE LAST NATURAL PATCH OF PEACE AND TRANQUILITY – The council of Labin, with the “blessing” of the Istrian Region, has evaded the usually necessary strategic evaluation on the impact which such developmental plans may have on the local area. No strategic survey or study has been made whatsoever. We maintain that such a study is not only needed but crucial before the execution of any such “strategic plan”, since it involves an area of great natural value, a protected natural sanctuary. Such a claim was validated and confirmed in March 2016, when a local conservation group accused the Istrian Region and reported them to the local Natural Preservation Agency for not adhering to the usual policy of funding a study which in turn would measure the impact of such developmental plans on the natural ambient, in other words a breach of the law that governs and protects natural areas.
