Xemxija residents oppose four-storey building
Xemxija residents have voiced opposition to a development application for the building of a four-storey block of flats at Triq is-Simar.
At a meeting of the Mepa board this morning, a representative of over 50 neighbours said that although the local plan allowed four-storey buildings, the proposed block (which would replace a two-storey building) would mar the environment and would be detrimental to the area. It would also spoil the view from other houses.
The residents said they were asking for the local plan to be revised.
The board postponed its decision until officials make a site visit.
