Abstract: Application No. 07511/03 for the development of garages, flats and maisonettes at a site between Sqaq il-Harruba and Triq Frans Grech, Marsascala, is symptomatic of our lack of respect for the major features of our countryside - i.e. carob trees and rubble walls. We certainly have not learned anything from the airport development and the Kalkara Valley issue, among others, which have resulted in myriads of carob trees being cut down. In view of the plethora of valid reasons as why the application should be turned down, the applicants should be fined for being so preposterous as to apply for the aforementioned site. A special thanks here goes to Stephen Borg and Annalise Falzon for supplying the information and for their tireless endeavour to save the area from development.
