Watch: Excavation work in Sliema in spite of summer ban

Thursday, 11 July 2019, 15:36 Last update: about 12 months ago

Excavation work was being carried out in Sliema today in spite of a summer ban.

The work was being carried out in the former parking area at the Regina Hotel in Tower Road.

The road in question is listed as a tourist area by the Planning Authority, and no excavation or demolition work can be carried out during the peak tourist season.


A woman, Susan Mompalao de Piro, filmed the work - which was taking place at around 1pm - and uploaded the footage on the social media.

The Malta Independent tried to contact the Building Regulations Office, but the number for after office hours complaints is switched off.
