Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The Planning Authority has initiated the planning process to annul the building height limitations that are currently set for developments in the industrial parks’ of l-Imriehel and Marsa.

In a statement the Planning Authority, PA said that to sustain economic growth, attract new investment and create new and better employment opportunities, the need to address the shortage of space for industrial and business uses is essential.

The proposed objectives to the partial review of the South Malta Local Plan, policy SMMR 1, and the Central Malta Local Plan, policy CG14, as amended by planning control application PC57/10 of 2012, may be downloaded from the Authority’s website. The submissions must be received by 30th October 2020.

The Authority has also commenced the process to review the zoning of a site in Triq il-Marloċċ, Żabbar. The PA said that the objective is to enable the implementation of a green urban open space project within the area.

The proposal is for the zoning of a site currently made up of a road space junction between Triq il-Marloċċ, Triq San Ġużepp and Triq Salvu Astarita, Żabbar as a public open space, while a planned green open space close by will be rezoned into a site for terraced housing.

This proposed objective comes with the guarantee that no additional financial burden on public finances will be necessary and that the amendment will not prejudice proper traffic circulation and public parking provisions, said the Authority.

The proposed objectives to the partial review of the South Malta Local Plan may be downloaded from the PA’s website and submissions must be received by 30th October 2020.
