Land to be given to developers instead of being enjoyed by the public – AD

Alternattiva Demokratika (AD) Chairperson Carmel Cacopardo has stated that development of the Jerma Palace Hotel site will involve land speculation, and as in the case of Pembroke, this 38,000 square metre parcel of land on the coastline is to be given to speculators instead of being enjoyed by the public.

Addressing the media, Mr Cacopardo said the closure of the hotel in 2007 already had a bad effect on tourism in the South. He added that through the application for the building to be demolished and replaced by a hotel and residential buildings to a height of between 13 and 15 storeys, a monster will be constructed which will result in the coastline not remaining accessible to the public.

Mr Cacopardo further stated that the proposed project will obstruct the views of St Thomas Tower and the coast. Government, he added, should take back this land and transform it into an open space to be enjoyed by the public.
