Council, ENGOs appeal Sliema tower decision
Sliema Local Council has officially filed an appeal before the Environment and Planning Review Tribunal (EPRT) in relation to the Planning Authority’s recent granting of the permit for Townsquare development - which includes a 38-storey tower.
The council said it is basing its appeal on the objections it has already raised during the initial submissions and hearings at the Planning Authority prior to its permit approval.
