Fort Cambridge requires SIA - Zminijietna

Zminijietna - Voice of the Left said that it is joining Sliema Local Council, environmental NGOs, residents and Alternattiva Demokratika - The Green Party in their call for a Social Impact Assessment for the Fort Cambridge project.

Zminijietna, which had submitted its proposals and objections to the proposed development to MEPA said

"The Fort Cambridge project is another case of overdevelopment in an area which is already characterised by immense development. It is for this reason that a proper social impact assessment is required for the project. Such an impact assessment should include appropriate sociological methodology which would measure the concerns of residents and other stakeholders. A social impact assessment should also analyse the impact such development in Sliema in terms of variables such as people's lifestyle, transport issues and health".
