Reformists warn against the ‘Monaco-isation’ of Gibraltar

The Reform Party yesterday expressed concern about the forthcoming multi-million pound Eastside development.

The party criticised the scheme as “yet another luxury enclave for the rich” and said it will be well out of financial reach of ordinary Gibraltarians. The Reformists said that the 2200 apartments planned for the development will not do anything for the Gibraltarians “who now find themselves having to live in ‘accommodation exile’ over the border.”

They added:

The much-heralded extra 200 offsite ‘affordable’ units associated with the project do constitute a positive element but what exactly will the word “affordable” mean in the long term? In any event, the whole site should have been used for this purpose.
