A green area accessible to the public and a heritage site have been included in the Planning Authority’s 100,000 square metre development brief of Marsaskala’s Jerma Palace Hotel.

A judicial protest from seven NGOs claims that the PA chose to include further areas to the development during a consultation for the drawing up for the site last year.

“In practice, this irregular Development Brief would lead to a massive development project that would impact negatively the infrastructure of Marsascala and the lives of residents, with no long-term benefit to the locality.”

The site is being earmarked for the development of a 15-storey hotel and apartment complex. Submitted in 2018, Porto Notos Limited proposed building 166 luxury apartments, 250 hotel rooms, an underground parking, business centre, public chapel and a lido.

The application is suspended for the time being.

The organisations that filed the judicial protest are:

  1. Din l-Art Ħelwa
  2. Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar
  3. Green House
  4. Moviment Graffitti
  5. Nature Trust Malta
  6. Ramblers Association of Malta
  7. The Archaeological Society of Malta
