Naxxar circus location moved - council
The location of the planned circus at Naxxar has been changed to the parking in front of the former Trade Fair Grounds, the council said in a statement today.
Residents of Naxxar have been petitioning against the planned circus, which was to be situated in a field bordering St Paul Street, a main road, close to the old Trade Fair grounds.
The council said this afternoon that it had discussed the matter during a public meeting in August during which the residents’ preoccupations were all considered.
Councillors had unanimously agreed there was no reason why they should object since they were convinced that the organisers were taking all necessary measures for there not to be unnecessary inconvenience for residents.
In spite of this, the council requested the organisers to move the circus to the parking in front of the Trade Fair. It also asked for the field to also be used for parking to avoid unnecessary problems. The council’s request was accepted, it said.
The council said that the organisers would also be cleaning the place daily and if this was not done, it reserved the right to issue default notices against the organisers.
The council noted that the majority of shows were being held at 5.30pm and at 7.30pm with the shows being over by 9.30pm.
Circo Fantasy, being brought over by Circus Events Ltd, plans to open its doors between November 8 and December 9.
