A development application for the expansion of Floriana’s multistorey car park and the construction of a public roof garden has been submitted.

The application was filed after a lengthy screening process stretching back to 2012. The planning authority has bound itself to give a final decision by May of next year.

MCP Company Limited, which owns the existing facility, wants to build in the middle core of the car park to increase capacity by about one-third – up to 1,550 spaces.

The plan involves landscaping the car park’s roof, which will once again become a recreational open space, as it was up to 1991, when the garden next to the Commonwealth Air Forces Memorial had to make way for the underground facility. The car park was inaugurated in February 1995.
