Check Out The Planning Authority's Massive Paceville Overhaul

The 'Paceville Masterplan' will involve a lot of 'looking at the bigger picture'

In a video launched today, the Planning Authority has revealed their (rather drastic) plans to totally renovate the now-infamous St. Julian's area.

"Wouldn't it be great if Paceville could change?" - these are the opening lines to the video, as its opening scenes lament the, rather crappy, current situation on the streets today.

"No more one-off developments, but an integrated plan for the whole area"

New Promenade

The plans, which would include holistically re-integrating old buildings into the space, opening up more public pedestrian areas and clearing the way for sea views we've never seen before, hope to make Paceville a space that the Maltese people can "feel proud of again".

Open Spaces

In a 'simple' six point plan, the Planning Authority is looking to complete the renovation by introducing a new tunnel for vehicles, cycle paths, views of the sea, public open spaces, coastal walkways and new power/water/utilities infrastructure (including technology to reuse rainwater).

Plans

If they pull this whole thing off, then Paceville could easily become the "blueprint for the future of all of Malta".
