Pietà Seafront – The Beginning Of The End


In the midst of the electoral madness the Planning Authority will decide on an application that may herald the beginning of the end of Pietà’s historic seafront. On the 2nd of June, only a day before the election, the PA is set to give the go-ahead for the mutilation of a legally protected Grade 2 scheduled historic villa along the marina with the applicant requesting the construction of a 7 storey apartment block in its place.

If the butchering of this historic building is approved, as has been recommended by the Planning Authority’s case officer, it will affirm the PA’s role as nothing more than a rubber-stamping Authority, supporting those trying to ‘make hay while the sun shines’ who have collectively been destroying Malta’s unique identity over the past 30 years, to the detriment of the Maltese public.

FAA has filed an urgent request asking for the matter to be decided upon by the full Planning Board rather than the 3-person Planning Commission.
