The Planning Commission at the Planning Authority has approved planning permission for the construction of a new football pitch and ancillary club facilities at the Sant Antnin Family Park in Marsaskala.

The project, which will cover a 6,000 square metre footprint, will see the construction of a football pitch together with new club premises, including a club shop, a restaurant and kitchen, a clinic, dressing rooms, a reservoir, a store and sanitary facilities.

The Commission also granted planning permission for a recreational park to be built on a large stretch of unused land located between Zabbar and Fgura, along Triq il-Kunsill tal-Ewropa.

The works on the park will include the formation of walkways, picnic areas, play areas, and a one storey building comprising a kiosk, a park attendant room and sanitary facilities, that will replace another building.

According to the Planning Authority, all existing trees will be retained as the park is intended to conserve the vegetation and ecosystem within the area while providing a formal recreational space.
