Bring back chairs and tables to Xaghra Square

Last week it was the vehicles that prevailed in the contest for the square after officials from the Lands Authority ordered strict adherence to permits on outdoor seating. That forced cafés and restaurants to take in most tables – each only has permits for a couple of tables, and the porfido-tiled area is not zoned as pedestrian.

The square has since reverted to a glorified car park. One of the liveliest in the islands, it boasts three restaurants and six cafés, some doubling as bars in the evenings. It makes for a charming scene on balmy evenings as the outdoor tables fill with diners and families, the baroque church looming ornately over the scene.
