Government should obtain green spaces in urban zones – PD

Deputy leader of the Partit Demokratiku Timothy Alden, has called on the government to intervene in creating open and recreational spaces in urban locations across Malta and Gozo.

Alden explained that the Government should buy green spaces like gardens and fields within cities and villages to prevent them being developed and for possible educational and community based projects.

The PD Deputy Leader had made similar comments to earlier in the year when discussing the situation facing a proposed development set to include the green space close to Villa Gwardamangia.

To defeat this, we need to mobilise people – Alden has already submitted questions to the Environment Minister Jose Herrera and is yet to receive a reply.
