The new Civic Centre for Fgura is nearing completion thanks to an investment of €600,000 from the Planning Authority’s Development Planning Fund.
Minister for Infrastructure Ian Borg, Parliamentary Secretary for Planning and the Property Market Chris Agius and Parliamentary Secretary for Local Government and Communities Silvio Parnis visited the site on Wednesday. Fgura Mayor Pierre Dalli was also on site.
Minister Borg explained how the Fgura local council had been planning this civic centre since 2003 and stressed that it is neither acceptable nor just for a local council to wait so many years to be able to implement its projects for the community. He added that it is thanks to the 2017 Planning Authority amendments that the Development Planning Fund is now available for projects like this.
