On Good Friday Neil Parish, Conservative MEP for Gibraltar and two of his colleagues, Richard Ashworth, who represents the South East, and Philip Bradbourn, from the West Midlands, visited the Rosia Bay area at the invitation of the South District Association to see at first hand the destruction of the Rosia Water Tanks.  Neil Parish expressed his dismay that the Government had gone ahead with the demolition of the Water Tanks in spite of all the representations and appeals that had been made.


As part of the intense campaign of lobbying to save the water tanks, he, as well as, Graham Watson, Liberal and Glyn Ford, Labour MEPs for Gibraltar, wrote to the Chief Minister, earlier this year, appealing to him to reconsider his decision to demolish them.  Mr Parish confirmed to members of the South District Association, who were showing him around the area, that the CM has still not replied to his letter.


In the hour that Mr Parish spent familiarising himself with the area, he showed great interest in the planning issues that the Nelson’s View project had exposed.  The SDA members present gave Mr Parish and his colleagues the background and history of the Rosia area and answered their many questions.  Mr Parish once again expressed the view that European Funding might be available to fund the restoration and beautification of the area and he offered, once again, to assist in the application process.  The SDA thanked Mr Parish for the support that he had given the Save the Rosia Tanks Campaign.
