One of St Julian’s oldest landmarks is under threat of being demolished after applicants deemed it as ‘derelict’.

The house, which is located on 33 Triq Karmnu, is revered for once being the site of St Julian’s Garden Theatre. Although the theatre is no longer in use, the garden itself is considered a breath of fresh air amidst the chaos of cranes and construction sites surrounding the area. 

But not for long. 

Applicants have labelled the site as ‘derelict’, issuing an outline development permit for its demolition, only to be replaced by another block of apartments. 

As you can imagine, the decision to destroy such a historic landmark has not gone down well with locals, who took to social media to express their frustration and anger with authorities.

In fact, many believe that the building is in good condition and see its destruction as merely an excuse to further develop an already overdeveloped area.

There have been discussions to organise a campaign in protest of this development, but nothing has come to fruition yet.

What do you make of this latest development?
