Qui-si-sana: Objection against further noise pollution and commercialisation

Re: 1926 Beach Club, ix-Xatt ta' Qui-Si-Sana, Sliema - Addition of roof garden and seating area over approved structure

I have submitted the following objection to the Planning Authority. Feel free to do the same. You can send an email to address below or object from this link: https://www.pa.org.mt/en/pacasedetails?CaseType=PA/05780/20

To: representations@pa.org.mt

Re: PA/05780/20 

 Attn Planning Authority, 

With reference to the above application, I am hereby objecting. 

The 1926 complex is a continuous source of unacceptable noise pollution for residents, including residents who live less than 100 meters away. Such development will increase such pollution apart from further commercialising the coast. 

I 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:

In this regard, please refer to my correspondence about SIAs dated 31 May 2019 to the PA in link below. To date, I have not been informed of any policy update in this regard.
