Amendments to the Kyrenia city planning decree were approved by the Council of Ministers, reportedly at the last-minute. The amendments mean that new buildings in the Kyrenia area may be constructed up to a height of eight storeys.

The first reaction came from leader of the Peoples’ Party (HP) Kudret Ozersay. In his personal social media account, he wrote that the government had, once again, proved that it plunders everything despite the reactions of the people.

Two weeks ago, hundreds of people took to the streets to demonstrate against the proposed amendments to the local planning laws, saying that they would damage the tourism industry.

Meanwhile, Turkish Cypriot daily’ Yeni Duzen’ reports that when the paper asked the Minister of tourism and Environment Fikri Ataoglu to comment on this decision, he replied: “I was abroad, it would be better to ask the head of the city planning department.”
