One time opportunity for property owners to adjust irregularities in buildings

The Planning Authority is giving a unique opportunity to owners of properties who have irregularities in their building. Parliamentary Secretary Deborah Schembri said that through new regulations, owners will be given permission and not a concession, and therefore will be able to sell their property without problems.

Dr Schembri said that the regulations will remain in force for two years and only apply to buildings that were constructed until photographs were taken by the Authority during this year. She added that the property should be within the development area and no buildings outside the development area will be considered for a permit under the new regulations. Dr Schembri said that a trend existed in the country that any person could build as it wished and if the Government had to enforce the laws, it could demolish many of the country’s buildings. It will be no longer tolerable, she said, that properties are built without the necessary permits and according to established regulations.
