Abstract: In this paper, I will focus on the role played by the community and the Local Council in Birgu, Malta in the regeneration of the locality. When the funds allocated by central government did not facilitate the rehabilitation of the area, the community had to come up with alternative plans to transform the locale in which they live primarily for the benefit of the inhabitants. The concomitant effect was that this started attracting visitors. The success of this plan however depended on the successful consultation between community members and its leaders at all stages of any project taken on board. The data for this presentation derived from an ethnographic study of Cottonera area in the last four years, interviews with community leaders, as well as the perusal of reports, newspaper articles and statistics relating to this topic.
