Re: €85m cost for emissions to be passed on to consumers

That's a lot of emissions for 85M eu would be interesting to know what technology the Elect authority's are using on the Gas Turbines to reduce emissions. EAC is using mainly heavy fuel driven generators which explains the high penalty... but they are since years planning to erect photovoltaic plan...

Re: 2021 opening planned for Neo Chorio theme park

What a pity turning productive farmland into a mainly concrete covered tourist site. If the theme park proves popular it certainly seems likely to spoil both the peacefulness and the natural beauty of this area. Why won’t the planners realise that not all tourists who choose to take their holiday h...

Re: 2021 opening planned for Neo Chorio theme park

So, this is the area of the planned theme park. I personally prefer this future business more than the existing messy looking sheep farms, green houses or abandoned cars (not to talk about the dumped rubbish everywhere) which one can recognize on this screen shot from Bing. https://up.picr.de/370454...

Re: 2021 opening planned for Neo Chorio theme park

Great idea and another reason to hurry up with the motorway towards Polis. It will change the whole area to awake from a deep slumber it is since >30 years I can remember. Obviously the ugly looking new hotel nearby knew already about it... Max what is the name of that hotel? As far as I know, the ...

Re: 2021 opening planned for Neo Chorio theme park

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I find the new Hotel on the skyline very attractive and a vast improvement on the existing network? of Hotels. The hotel is not even opened, and among other things the ugly looking wooden construction is one of the reasons that there is no permit issued yet...a...

Re: Do you know Cyprus? Villages (#34) difficult

This after using the camera 1 year now I have still plenty to read from 182 pages in the "help guide"... :roll:
