Attard council opposes development behind Villa Bologna

July 11, 2008

Attard local council has voted unanimously in favour of a motion calling for an open space behind historic Villa Bologna not to be developed.

AD said the motion was moved by Ralph Cassar, an AD councillor, and backed by the PN and MLP councillors.

Mr Cassar moved the motion following information that a decision was about to be taken by MEPA on an application for the development of the area behind Villa Bologna.

The motion was based on two main reasons: that this area of Attard is already densely developed and new building would hide the decorated wall of Villa Bologna.

The council is to inform MEPA of its decision.
