AD welcomes decision to maintain protection for Villa Mekrech

The MEPA board this afternoon unanimously decided to maintain heritage protection for Villa Mekrech in Ghaxaq despite a request for de-scheduling to permit the building of six apartments in its garden.  Alternattiva Demokratika welcomed this decision: “It is about time that the few green lungs left in Malta are kept intact and given the protection they deserve”, said AD Deputy Chairperson Carmel Cacopardo.
