Apr 29 - Mid Harbours Committee Express Desire to Work with the Housing Department

  • Hits: 911

mid harbours The Mid Harbour Estate Committee have once again written an open letter to the press following a recent statement released by the Government, defending their position on the state of the Estate. The Committee insists that there is no person or certain individual seeking to spread misinformation and distort reality’.  They claim that they have always expressed their desire to work with the Government and the Housing Department for the benefit of the Estate.

The committee statement continues, ‘because of the perceived lack of interest, initiative, communication and action by Government Departments, the Committee felt that its only option was to resort to the media. If nothing else, our Press Release has served one purpose; to inspire some lively debate! We hope and trust that its PRIME purpose will come to fruition as well!! That is, to illicit POSITIVE responses from a Government Department seemingly in the grip of inertia, in order to rectify the problems inherent in the Estate. It has never been the intention of the Committee to score ‘brownie points’. There are MANY on the estate with grievances but most, if not all are happy and thankful for their homes.’

Apr 25 - Tradewinds Tenants Oppose Floating Hotel

  • Hits: 1679

sunbornDuring this morning’s meeting of the Development and Planning Commission, the proposed Government project, to berth a Super Yacht Flotel at Marina Bay, stirred an extensive debate, with one resident of Tradewinds completely opposing the plan due to its almost inevitable issues of increased vehicular traffic in the Ocean Village area, as well the matter of reclaimed land by the Gala Casino, which would act as a car park for the hotel.

The floating structure will have 167 guest rooms, along with bars, restaurants, conference rooms, a spa and a gym, and is set to be berthed behind the Gala Casino, parallel to Marina Bay. The ship, the Deputy Town Planner explained, is set to be 140 meters long.

Apr 25 GSD Response - Government-Registered Companies

Gibraltar CompaniesGSD Astonished At Government Response

The GSD Opposition notes the Government’s astonishing statement that the use of No 6 Convent Place (the principal offices of the Government of Gibraltar) as registered address and provision of company formation, administration and nominee services is part of the GSLP-Liberal manifesto commitments to assist entrepreneurs and persons setting up their companies.

Of course, this, in effect, means that the Government of Gibraltar is providing subsidised company formation and subsidised nominee shareholders in the form of public servants, on top of subsidised contracts with the Government of Gibraltar by direct allocation and subsidised labour through the Future Job Strategy scheme!

Apr 25 - May Day Rally – Feetham’s Invitation to Speak is Withdrawn

  • Hits: 936

mr feethamYesterday evening, Leader of the Opposition Daniel Feetham noted how saddened he was by the fact that the Gibraltar Trades Council has withdrawn a written invitation for him to speak at next week’s May Day Rally. Mr. Feetham described the withdrawal as scandalous. He explained that he originally received a  written invitation on behalf of the Gibraltar Trades Council for him to speak for 10 minutes at the May Day Rally.

Earlier this week, Mr. Feetham met with a top union official who insisted that the Chief Minister had gone ‘ballistic’ when he found out that Mr. Feetham would also speak at the event. The union official in question, therefore, asked the Leader of the Opposition to withdraw as a speaker voluntarily because the Union had a number of issues which it was currently negotiating with the Government which it did not want to jeopardise.
