Bungalows and roads to replace Santa Marija Estate Woodland

Bungalows and roads to replace Santa Marija Estate Woodland
Sep 14 2021 Share

The Santa Marija estate woodlands’ days seem to be numbered as the Planning Authority has approved a zoning request for a brand new road leading to six new villas in the same area. The 6000sqm of woodland, which include mature trees and an allegedly protected watercourse, will be replaced by bungalows. The project reportedly received an unanimous vote in favour by all board members of the council. 

Despite being known for its ecological importance, the area has allegedly been earmarked as residential development since 2006. This means that the project is permissible. A report by the case officer labels the area as ecologically sensitive, and recommends that the trees be integrated within the development plans. With the road leading to the bungalows set to occupy over 1,000sqm of green land, integrating the trees does not seem to be possible, with plans showing the bungalows fated to replace the greenery.

Bernard Grech promises PN will cover all cancer treatment costs if elected

Addressing a crowd, Opposition Leader Bernard Grech pledged that the Nationalist Party will cover all costs related to cancer treatment if elected to government. The news was announced as Grech addressed an event in Mqabba, with the leader saying that to him, whatever form of cancer one has, ‘you have a value as a person, and we should take care of you and pay for whatever cancer treatment you need.’ He revealed how telling someone fighting cancer to ‘request charity or [to] dig into their own pockets’ hurts him. 

Despite praising charity organisations such as the Malta Community Chest Fund, Grech said that the time for relying on charity must come to an end. Such groups spend around €1 million on treatment per month, with costs racking up to over €120,000 per patient annually. Grech also addressed IVF treatment, stating that a specialist is need on the island at all times. Grech said that lives are at stake and that ‘if we have money to waste on this government’s excesses then we have money to invest in families.’
