started this petition to
the people and the PA
We would like to point out a proposed development- with total demolition of a beautiful house + large rare mature garden in Sliema, Malta .This proposal has conveniently gone unnoticed by many In Sliema - mostly since the permit outside was wrongly placed. The permit is for 32 lock up garages, 19 apartments, 4 penthouses and 3 offices (class 4A).
We need people to object by the 13th of January to save this historically garden and house.Re: PA/09273/19 - 103, Triq Manuel Dimech, Triq Parisio Sliema . So this is URGENT.
This building is a true architectural gem, unlike any other house in Sliema, it is unique for it's tower like belvedere at the back of the property, which would have once stood proudly above all the area, the statues and beautiful windows, it's historical value is undeniable. And the wonderful garden around it - we have so few trees and gardens left, especially in Sliema..
This whole site is part of our Maltese heritage and should be treated as such. This site should be untouchable. This site should be restored and enjoyed by the community instead of being wiped off the face of our island, another beautiful feature which makes the island special and attractive, which makes up part of our identity as Maltese - gone without a trace. Dont let greedy developers take away more of the little green we have left.
Over 20 untouched houses , on 4 different streets ,all built towards the end of the 19th century will be directly effected by this development.
Many of which depend on their gardens for light and air since our roads are already heavily polluted, this development would take away both.
Please sign this petition to help prevent the demolition of this beautiful national heirloom and share the cause with your friends! Thank you. .
