Greeks fear coastal development plans

Many Greeks fear legislation to allow coastal development will lead to the destruction of pristine coastlines.

    At least 150,000 Greeks have signed an online petition against a bill to increase coastal development.

    As a result, the government has decided to propose a new watered-down version.

    But many fear it is only a question of time before the bill, which they claim threatens to destroy Greece's pristine coastline, is resurrected.
