At the request of Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to postpone, until the next Cabinet meeting, a decision on the resort project at Palmachim.

During the coming week, Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman will attempt to formulate a proposal that would prevent a situation in which the Government would constitute a kind of appellate body vis-à-vis decisions of the District Planning and Building Committee.  At the end of the discussion, the Prime Minister emphasized that his clear position is, and remains, that the coastal strip is a unique natural resource that must be preserved for the benefit of the public at large.
