1.        Background
St. John the Baptist Square in Xewkija has been last regenerated more than 15 years ago when Local Councils were introduced in Malta. Throughout the years, the respective Local Council tried to reorganise the square in different ways but the interventions carried out were minimal. Such interventions consisted in asphalting certain areas of the square, upgrading the pavement and introducing decorative street lighting.
Being the square in front of the imposing Rotunda Church, a building of worship and visited by hundreds of tourists daily, the Ministry decided to upgrade the square since the asphalt and pavements are in a desperate state. The square is lively as it hosts the Police Station and Government Clinic. Besides, there are 2 café bars, a food store, restaurant and a boutique hotel.
