The rape of Bid­nija

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LETTERS -

One of the last small pretty vil­lages is be­ing de­stroyed by mas­sive con­struc­tion.

No less than three cranes are busy work­ing at ru­in­ing Bid­nija.

I have per­son­ally bought land in or­der to help pre­serve our vil­lage but there is very lit­tle back­ing from the in­sti­tu­tions that should be safe­guard­ing our her­itage.

How can we build high-rise build­ings and at the same time de­stroy our vil­lages? It should be one or the other.

If we are go­ing high, then ur­ban sprawl should not be al­lowed.

I would also like to know if these builders have the nec­es­sary per­mits. Should not the Plan­ning Author­ity see what is hap­pen­ing in Bid­nija which af­ter all is out­side the de­vel­op­ment zone? Mau­rice F. Mizzi Bid­nija
