The edenic lagoon of Elafonissi is endangered with concretization since, as denounced by the municipal council and the locals, private economic interests prevent the adoption of the Master Plan which will determine the land uses in the area. The Master Plan being adopted by the local municipality of Innahorion does not allow "concreting" the beach or operating quarries in the region. Although supported by the local government, the Region of Crete ignores that!
The locals have started a fight agaist financial exploitation of Elafonissi. Thus they have organised a Committee that has as main target to protect their paradise. They have created a blog (texts are mainly in Greek) in order to coordinate their moves and make their problem known to public. In a short time, they will announce an online petition for protecting Elafonissi.
