Abstract: You might have thought that things could not get any worse for the former hamlet of Burmarrad... a burgeoning vehicle-leasing outlet, car spare parts strewn over fields and a traffic-congested arterial road slashing through its heart. But we were all proven wrong, with Burmarrad being granted its own retail centre on the site of the former Farmers’ Wine building, which is being bandied around as an ‘improvement’ of the current ‘derelict’ site. The 5,900-square-metre site is opposite an existing area of containment and will house offices, storage facilities, a retail centre and 107 parking spaces – amenities which normally jar with open countryside, but not in Malta, it seems. If one dared to delve deeper into the case, one would realise that the system has been worked to a tee for the permit to be issued.
