Revision of Local Plans

The Malta Environment and Planning Authority is currently revising local plans. I will be speaking on the issue as Sliema Local Councillor, where I intend to emphasize issues such as overdevelopment, open spaces, traffic congestion, solar energy rights, building heights and commercialization.

Residents, NGOs and other stakeholders are invited to contact me at with concrete suggestions in this regard.

In the meantime, newspaper Malta Today, referring to official figures of the National Statistics Office, has reported that Sliema, which saw 852 new applications in the past five years, registers the second-highest number of vacant properties in Malta: 4,061. Between 2005 and 2011, vacant properties in Sliema shot up by 1,394.
