1.        Background

The Government is committed to strengthening security and order in Paceville. This process has already started with an increased  police presence on the streets on weekends.
We recognised that the situation had to be addressed through collaboration with different areas of civil society. To achieve this, we set up a working group within the Ministry for Home Affairs and National Security composed of representatives of stakeholders including Mayors of Local Councils in the area of ​​Paceville, The Malta Tourism Authority, GRTU, the Police and the Foundation for the Development  of Tourist Areas.  .
 Paceville has changed radically over the years from a residential area to a centre of entertainment, and  it was time for serious change.  Paceville throws up many issues -  social as well as health and safety, so it is necessary to  take a broad  approach. .
We recognise that the necessary improvements are only possible through collective effort. Therefore to further continue the work to provide a complete plan and take the necessary decisions, as Minister I am offering the public the opportunity to have their  voice heard. There are several aspects that need to be improved,  in the legislative field, in the area of ​​enforcement and in providing training in health and safety. This is a government that listens and therefore through this public consultation, you are encouraged to give your suggestions and your ideas.
All proposals will be evaluated and considered. The deadline was Friday, 4th December 2015.
I believe that the public has a lot to contribute to overcoming these challenges.
From my part, both as a politician and above all as a father, I am determined, with the cooperation from the respective authorities, the civil society and the private sector, we will improve  order, and respect for the law and the environment.
We want young people to enjoy a good night out in Paceville but safely, and giving  peace of mind to parents like myself.
