Most of Malta’s towns and villages are set to benefit from a well-deserved demolition and excavation break…

That’s right – the Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) has just announced that said works will be prohibited in so-called ‘tourist areas’.

This law will come into effect on 15th June and will last up until 30th September.

Affected localities include Attard, Birzebbugia, Gzira, Isla, Bormla, Marsascala, Mdina, Sliema, St Julian’s, Qrendi, and Valletta.

Localities around Gozo – such as Xlendi, Sannat, Victoria, San Lawrenz, and Qala – will also benefit from this law.

One should note that excavation and demolition works will only be prohibited in select streets from the listed localities.

Having said that, other towns and villages will be facing a total ban on said works. Such localities include Ramla l-Hamra, Comina, Valletta, Bormla, and Isla.

Should you witness any demolition and excavation works being carried out in the identified localities and streets within the stipulated timeframe, these can be reported to the Building and Construction Authority on  8004 9000 during office hours, and on 99637508 (Malta), 99098855 (Gozo), or [email protected] after office hours.

What do you think of this law?
