Re: PA 04757/19 - rehabilitation and embellishment of Sally Port Promenade, Birgu

I am hereby submitting the following objection re PA 04757/19 - rehabilitation and embellishment of Sally Port Promenade, Birgu

Whilst recognizing that the area in question requires rehabilitation, the proposed development should be in line with relevant policies (e.g.  'Kottonera Strategy' (issued by the Planning Authority, the Ministry for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects and the Ministry for Justice, Culture and Local Government) and recognize that is a public space which is enjoyed by the community. 

I therefore appeal to the PA to carry out a social impact assessment before considering this application, in accordance with international standards for example those set by the International Association for Impact Assessment, which is accessible from this link:
