Government announces major refurbishment of housing estates


In line with its manifesto commitment, the Government has given the go-ahead for major refurbishment and improvement works to Laguna Estate, Glacis Estate and Moorish Castle Estate. The works will be spread over this term of office and result in a major facelift to all the estates which will improve the quality of life of the people who live there.

The works will consist of re-cladding, window replacement and the provision of defined individual clothes drying areas.

There will also be a major lift-installation programme in Moorish Castle and Laguna
Estates.

There will be an additional residential floor added to above each of the buildings in the three housing estates. This means that the roof problems being experienced by many of these buildings will finally be tackled once and for all.

It will also result in the delivery of over 200 new flats for rental which the Government will allocate to persons on the housing waiting list. The exact number of flats depends on the final room configuration.

In line with the policy of the Government, the plans and proposals will be submitted to the Development and Planning Commission for guidance and advice.

Commenting on the matter, the Minister for Housing Charles Bruzon said:

“I am delighted to be able to announce that the new Government is going to make a start in tackling the many problems that residents of Glacis, Laguna and Moorish Castle Estates have been enduring for years. In a very real sense, these were the forgotten areas of Gibraltar and we now want to improve the quality of life of the people who live there. The Cabinet gave the green light to the proposals yesterday and I am very pleased that they are moving forward.”
