LOCAL COUNCIL PETITION - AGAINST CHANGE OF PLANNING ALIGNMENT OF NEW PART OF TUMAS CASSAR STREET CORNER WITH VISITATION STREET
Il_pjazza___awwissu_13.indd.pdf During the 7th Council meeting the Council discussed PC application 0026/13 recently submitted by the Lands Department to Mepa which application proposes to change the road alignment at new street in Thomas Cassar Street from 34.5 feet to 28 feet. This application is not taking in consideration that when the road is opened a pavement of 3feet and 3 inches on each side of the road will be constructed thus narrowing the road to 21 foot and 6 inches (approx). After discussing the issue the Council members voted where four members voted against the narrowing of the road and one member did not take part in the vote. PC Application 0026/13 entails the following: 1. Itʼs tied with a past issue, where a development is already obstructing Visitation Street leading to Felic Grech Street causing a big inconvenience. 2. The road will be narrowed too much to meet todayʼs traffic needs. 3. Such narrowing will remove the possibility of this road serving as a better access to the Square since both roads leading to the Square i.e. Church Street are narrow and Visitation Street is obstacled as explained above. 4. It goes against the guidelines for sustainable development and doesnʼt cater for the better planning and accessibility of the locality. For these reasons the Council is doing this petition for those residents who are listed in the last electoral register. A partial and independent person will be visiting households door to door to collect signatures to support the Councilʼs decision. However one can opt to sign the petition at the Councilʼs offices. We recommend all to back the Council and sign this petition so that the PC application is refused. Thanks for your cooperation
