In a public meeting on the 9th September 2022, the ERA Board approved the impact assessment reports in relation to the demolition and redevelopment of the Mellieħa Bay Hotel.

The Board noted that the development had improvements made from the initial submissions. It is confined to the area already occupied by the existing built development and its ancillary landscaping and infrastructure. Moreover, by requesting the developers to shift the development away from the coast, and additional changes, about 4,500 m2 will be restored to its original state and returned to the public, also shifting the development away from the coast, allowing for its restoration.

The approved position, and the detailed conditions tied to it, will be forwarded to the Planning Authority as ERA’s formal recommendation on the case.
