MEPA REDUCES DEVELOPMENT FEES

Revision

The Malta Environment and Planning Authority (MEPA) has significantly reduced its development planning fees (DPFs) for new development applications that relate to social, cultural, educational and sports activities. As a result of this revision, the fee that will now need to be paid on planning applications such as hospitals, residential and educational institutions, museums, places of worship, sport facilities and social clubs has decreased by 39%. The Authority has also introduced a capping mechanism, which will be of €40,000 for such applications. Through this measure, MEPA and the Government will be assisting and encouraging non-profit making organizations in the work they carry out.

In order not to discourage the practice of rehabilitating disused quarries for waste disposal, land reclamation for agriculture purposes or impose further costs on the quarry industry which would ultimately translate into an indirect cost on all built development, the Authority also set a capping on these type of development applications.
