Qawra bungalow zone 'free' of apartment blocks

The Planning Authority has rejected a proposal to build four-storey apartment blocks in Qawra’s coastal bungalow zone

Qawra residents can breathe a sigh of relief after the Planning Authority’s executive council rejected a proposal to develop four-storey apartment blocks.

The proposal was to change the existing zoning scheme from villa/bungalow area to a 25m height terraced development.

The site is located at Triq il-Majjiera/Triq il-Bekkun/Triq l-Istamnar.

Nine out of the 11 bungalow owners on the site supported the change whilst some 280 residents had filed objections to the plan.
