Greens call for further investigation into new Larnaca tower

A 22-floor tower has been approved for construction in Larnaca without a relevant environmental impact study being carried out, the Green Party said on Thursday.

The plot, on Finikoudes could be subject to subsidence, posing potential dangers, while the party points out that Larnaca is an earthquake zone, meaning additional risks.

“We believe that the competent group should examine the project more carefully before they move to its implementation because of the land’s peculiarity and also consider other important factors in the surroundings,” the Greens said about the 92 metre building.

The government, the Greens announcement said, has promised an impact study for the construction of high buildings and the height extension of the city.
