Old Gibraltar Town is being destroyed with High Rising Concrete Blocks

We do not want our old buildings in Gibraltar to be replaced by concrete towers blocks. Many cities in the world are known and appreciated for well-kept historical buildings and sites, which is attracting thousands of visitors from all over the world. Please let us keep our heritage.
Stage 1 - Stop
The Government planning commission is meeting in due course to consider a private reapplication to demolish 47 Line Wall road (Amar's Bakery building) plus two old original buildings in College Lane - Nos 15 and 17
The facade of these old historic buildings, dating back to 1863, in the
centre of town take up almost a third of the length of the lane. It is
intended to replace this part of the old town with a modern tower concrete block of
approximately 40 private apartments with NO car parking on site.
The government's own 2009 Old Town Planning guild specifically states that no
building in the Old Town can be built more than five stores except under
exceptional circumstances and that College Lane along, with one other,
should be beautified.
If you think this proposal is totally unacceptable and that the existing
facades should be retained, enhanced and redecorated rather than turned into
a pile of rubble, please comment with your views. Please support by signing asap.
