    Car parks should be under council responsibility - AD

    AD – The Green Party condemned Transport Malta which once more ignored Local Councils when it commenced the process which could lead to the privatisation of parking areas in various localities.

    Carmel Cacopardo, AD Deputy Chairman and spokesman on Sustainable Development and Home Affairs said that Transport Malta ignored the local councils as common sense dictates that they should be responsible for the car parks administration. There was no consultation about this matter with local councils, which goes against the Local Councils Act which states that local councils should be consulted with every decision affecting the locality.

    Carmel Cacopardo, stated that for these reasons AD agrees with the motion which the Opposition has presented in Parliament which stops the privatisation of parking areas and demands public consultation as to the manner of local council involvement.

    Carmel Cacopardo concluded by referring to the declaration of the Hon Franco Debono in support of the motion and stating that it is now hoped that government would come to its senses.

    Michael Briguglio, AD Chairman said “that the parking issue follows the process through which Local Councils are losing much authority over usage of wardens due to increased centralization. This is another slap in the face for subsidiarity and decentralization".

    Il-parkeggi ghandhom ikunu taht ir-responsabbilta’ tal-kunsilli lokali - AD

    Alternattiva Demokratika tikkundanna lil Transport Malta li ghal darba ohra injorat lill-Kunsilli Lokali meta pprocediet bi process li jista’ jwassal ghall-privatizzazzjoni ta’ parkeggi diversi fil-lokalitajiet.

    Carmel Cacopardo, Vici Chairman u kelliemi ta’ AD ghall-Izvilupp Sostenibbli u l-Intern qal li ghal darba ohra Transport Malta injorat lill-Kunsilli Lokali li s-sens komun kien jitlob li kellhom ikunu huma li jinghataw ir-responsabbilta’ ghall-amministrazzjoni tal-parkeggi. L-anqas ma saret l-ebda konsultazzjoni mal-Kunsilli Lokali dwar il-materja u dan kontra dak li tipprovdi l-ligi dwar il-Kunsilli Lokali li tesigi l-konsultazzjoni ma’ Kunsill Lokali dwar kull materja li teffettwa l-lokalita.

    Carmel Cacopardo zied jghid li ghal dawn ir-ragunijiet Alternattiva Demokratika taqbel mal-mozzjoni mressqa mill-Opposizzjoni fil-Parlament li twaqqaf il-process tal-privatizzazzjoni tal-parkeggi u titlob li jinghata bidu ghal konsultazzjonui pubblika bl-iskop li jkunu involuti l-Kunsilli Lokali.

    Carmel Cacopardo ikkonkluda li AD tittama li d-dikjarazzjoni tal- Onorevoli Franco Debono li ser jappogga din il-mozzjoni  ggib il-Gvern f’sensieh.

    Michael Briguglio, Chairman ta’ AD qal li: “l-materja dwar il-parking giet wara l-process li permezz tieghu il-Kunsilli Lokali tnehhilhom kull kontroll fuq is-sitema tal-wardens minhabba zieda fic-centralizzazzjoni. Din hi daqqa ta’ harta ohra ghas-sussidjarjeta’
    u d-dicentralizzazzjoni".
