Development Planning

Development Planning

Practice Area Overview

Malta is a small island state, in which space for development is limited but construction remains central to the economy. A sustainable balance between development and conservation of the natural environment and the historical and cultural heritage is challenging to achieve, and is one of the reasons why planning and environmental laws, policies and regulations change rapidly. New regulations greatly effect investment opportunities in real estate. Planning law looks into redevelopment and change of use in existing buildings and property developers and owners require expert advice before embarking on projects, especially large-scale ones. Mamo TCV has established a strong reputation in this field. Our team keeps abreast of all local developments in planning law and is aware of all the latest policy and design guidelines issued by the authorities, regularly working with technical experts such as architects, geologists, and environment and heritage specialists.
