Reading Time: < 1 minute

A historic villa with an extensive landscaped garden in Pietà has been given the highest level of protection by the Planning Authority.

Villa Frere, an 18th-century neoclassical building with botanical gardens built on terraces at its rear, is now a Schedule 1 building. It was previously classified as a Schedule 2 structure.

The decision was taken by the Planning Authority in consultation with the Superintendence of Cultural Heritage.
