A local filmmaker created a heartfelt video shedding light on a recent proposal that could see 71 apartments and 74 garage units built in Nadur fields – “fertile land still in use,” the video caption reads.

Chelsea Muscat, in support of Malta Arch, created the brief video showing the fertile land that would be used to build this development if the proposal goes through.

“I used to wake up to the sound of birds but now every morning is interrupted by the sounds of construction,” she says in the video, sharing details about the development while also lamenting the amount of construction done on our islands.

“One day in the near future you will wake up and it will be dark outside because the sun will be obstructed by the buildings we let them build and it will be too late,” she says, urging people to email their representations to the Planning Authority.

“It is so rare to be from such a place, to have this beauty, our culture, our people. We are such a small fraction in this world – less than a million of us. So let’s preserve who we are, and let’s preserve our beautiful island for we have so much to offer and I hope our future generations get to see that.”

The deadline to object is tomorrow, 19th February. You can send in your objects to [email protected] with PA/00085/21 in the subject line, copying the statement in the Facebook post.
