Nature Hut & Meditation Areas In Bormla Urban Greening Project

3,000sqm of developable land will be turned into a green open space featuring landscaped areas, play equipment, a nature hut and zones for different activities at the heart of the Bormla community.

Proposals for the site, presently used for a parking lot adjacent to the American University of Malta, have already been presented to the public during a public consultation held a few months ago by Project Green. As a result of this discussion, Project Green updated the original plans to better meet the community’s requirements.

A planning application has now been submitted to the Planning Authority. The proposed plans for the site were presented during a press conference held at the Bormla Local Council by Environment Minister Miriam Dalli and Project Green CEO Steve Ellul.

The revamped space will include a meditation area, a nursing area, a nature hut, inclusive play equipment, picnic spots, parkour zones and artisan corners, with the project’s guiding principle being that of delivering a space that places the community at the heart of the project.

To address parking limitations, the project will also cater for underground parking, set to accommodate some 240 spaces.

The urban greening project in Bormla is an electoral measure that shows how underutilised spaces in our country can be revitalised. Through strategic landscaping and greenery integration, the project will enhance urban biodiversity. In connection with the area’s history and preserving cultural heritage, historical archways have been incorporated in the project and all construction works will be closely monitored by archaeological experts.

“We are looking at delivering projects where the community can feel part of the project from its inception. Consultation, along with the sustainability and long-term maintenance of the projects, are crucial principles to any project that we are delivering. We know that the presented planning plans represent a project that the community was asking for, taking onboard the feedback that came through e-NGOs, residents, and stakeholders,” Minister Miriam Dalli said.

Minister Dalli reminded that this year, Project Green and other entities within the Environment Ministry have already completed more than 45,000 square metres of new or regenerated gardens and other open spaces across the country.

In his remarks, Steve Ellul, CEO of Project Green noted the public’s input, which has been ongoing for the past months. Project Green has met with children in schools, NGOs and the general public living in Bormla on a number of occasions, which have been pivotal in shaping the project’s design, which is now finalised and submitted to the relevant authorities.

The Urban Greening – Bormla Project reimagines urban spaces, creating a sense of belonging. Through collaboration, we’re turning vision into reality. This initiative aligns with our mission of weaving nature into urban landscapes,” said Steve Ellul.

This comes as members of the popular YouTube group stay in Malta for Vikkstar’s reported wedding. 

The clip was reshared to TikTok by user joeytafaccata, as the two members try to guess where they are based off of a google maps viewpoint. 

Could this have been the moment Vikkstar realised he wanted to get married here? Highly unlikely, but it could have prompted his interest in the Mediterranean island!

Which Type Of Home Suits You Best?

Which Type Of Home Suits You Best?

Let’s be real here, we’ve all spent uncountable hours thinking up our ultimate home if money was no object. The kind of dream home you conjure up in your head says a lot about you – so let’s delve right into that.

1. The Cottagecore Galore

The whimsical charm of a cottage nestled in nature. When not out foraging for mushrooms, you spend your days pottering around the house, refilling bird feeders and crocheting mug cosies. It’s a cute and cosy life for you.

2. The Summer Suave 

You’re the king of the heat. Your barbecue skills are immaculate. Your pool parties are legendary, and you probably suffer from SAD at the first sight of clouds.

3. The Peter-Pan Syndrome

Growing up? Nah, not for you—at least not yet. You surround yourself with things that spark joy and keep that childlike wonder alive. Life is a playground, and your dream house should be too.

4. The DIYer

Because why would you ‘get a guy in’ when you can probably figure it out yourself? You enjoy the satisfaction of creating and fixing things with your own two hands. This may mean that some things are a little less than perfect, but you take pride in your craftsmanship nonetheless.

5. The All Guns Out Grandioso

Why settle for anything less than extraordinary? You’re not afraid to be extra, and your home should reflect that. Think opulent interiors, dramatic architecture, and jaw-dropping features that leave everyone in awe.

6. The Modern Minimalist

Simplicity is key for you. Your dream home is all about clean lines, sleek designs, and a clutter-free environment. You appreciate the beauty of simplicity and seek a space that exudes calmness and serenity.

7. The Recluse

You never have phone reception, and it takes hours for people to get to you, and that’s just the way you like it. You’ve had just about enough of the world and everybody in it, so you’ve moved far far away to create a little world of your own.

What If Donald Trump Visited Malta?

What if the controversial former United States president Donald Trump visited our Mediterranean island?

Well, artificial intelligence creator Malta.ai has taken a go at depicting the scenario, depicting the currently indicted politician chilling in various scenic locations on our island.

Striking his usual, rather awkward poses, Trump can be seen posing in various harbours and cities around Malta – and it seems as if he would very much enjoy it. 

What do you make of this?
