Qawra’s coastal bungalow zone. Photo: Steve Zammit Lupi The fate of Qawra's coastal bungalow zone could be sealed this evening as the Planning Authority decides whether to allow four-storey apartment blocks in the area. The plan to change height restrictions on a site measuring 8,000 square-metres on the seafront was met with objections from 280 Qawra residents. The planning executive council will meet at 5pm to discuss changing the height limitation to allow three floors and penthouses and increase the maximum built up coverage of the low-density site to 50 per cent. The area on the Qawra seafront, just past the Dolmen Hotel, is made up of 11 detached one-storey bungalows. Nine out of the 11 bungalow owners on the site support the change, which is vehemently opposed by residents of nearby blocks. Objecting residents insist that the site in question is part of a much larger area that once belonged to a single owner, who included restrictive conditions in each contract of transfer to preserve the site as developed in line with a holistic master plan. The PA was expected to decide on the re-zoning application last March but the residents filed a request for an injunction through their lawyer Ian Stafrace. However, last April the court... >

Following the half-yearly reports being issued in the last days, it is the investors’ interest to remain tuned for any possible opportunities that might be in place. From a company perspective, financial reports are a double-edged sword, since their performance will be under scrutiny compared to market expectations set beforehand. As such, this judgement will be reflected in the share price fluctuations depending on how much the actual results under-perform or over-perform from the market expectations set beforehand. Finacial report data Valeo reported 16% growth in order intake excluding the €3 billion order intake at the Valeo-Siemens JV and its operating margin moved up by 17% considering the takeover of Ichikoh on January 2017.

New Planning Authority website gives access to DNOs, compliance certificates

Date: Mon, 24 Jul 2017 09:49:00 +0200
Compliance certificates and Development Notification Orders (DNOs) can now be filled in online from the Planning Authority's new website. Addressing a press conference, PA executive chairman Johann Buttigieg said that the two popular applications, accessed by dozens of people daily, would be available from the comfort of one's home or mobile phone. Water and electricity services are only installed when an applicant is in possession of a valid compliance certificate, while DNOs cover any proposed development that does not have an impact on the site or neighbouring residences. The authority's new-look website comes on the back of a recent upgrade of its map server which acts like Google Maps for planning issues. A spokeswoman for the authority said research had been conducted among professionals who used the old website, mainly architects, and members of the public to identify key features that needed attention. She explained that the new website, considerably faster than the original, included a useful tools section for both the public and professionals, which included the most requested services.

The girl's family said dozens of festivals, markets and businesses have now offered them the opportunity to set up a lemonade stand.
