Post-war planning permits now available online

Survey sheets were used until 1990

Post World War II planning survey sheets which were used to geographically record where planning permits had been issued have now become available online for the use of periti.

This latest e-tool followings a series of other online services the Planning Authority has rolled out over the past months.

This new e-tool iwill give all periti the facility to research the planning permit history of a site from the comfort of their whereabouts.

The survey sheets, which illustrate the story of urbanisation in Malta, stopped formally being used to record planning permits in 1990 with the introduction of the Geographical Information System.

In total, the authority has just under 1500 survey sheets some of which span over 50 years. Each sheet covers an area of 2 square kilometres.

While the service provided by the Mapping Shop will remain, periti now have the option to search through such records online, subject to a nominal yearly subscription fee. The annual fee is currently set at €50 for an individual membership and €200 for partnerships of periti.
