The Malta Environment and Planning Authority (MEPA) approved new designs for the construction of a sea passenger terminal at Mgarr Harbour, Gozo.

These designs will take over from the application previously approved. The changes proposed include the terminal building’s outer appearance, decreasing its size and height, and rearranging the routes used for admission.

The idea of reducing the height of the building was proposed in order to reduce the impact on the Fort Chambray backdrop. The underground parking and the marshalling are will also be used.

The new proposed building is very cautious and merges a lot with the harbour’s landscape. The building design also includes a viewing tower.
