About Isla

A Sustainable city with an ambition set out to create a Sustainable Community Strategy which will tackle the economic growth of Isla but will not be achieved at the expense of the environment. The ambitions set out in its Sustainable Community Strategy are “Our economic growth will not have been achieved at the expense of the environment – Isla will be a sustainable city with excellent air quality, low waste levels, low carbon emissions and high recycling rates.”

L-Isla targets are to be a sustainable city with excellent air quality, low waste levels, low carbon emissions and high recycling rates. L-isla Local council has embarked on the Region’s commitment to 10% cuts in their carbon emissions by 2012. The council will commit to a fixed target for emissions cuts, the council will support the locality with the practical guidance and resources they need to achieve those reductions. To improve energy efficiency; developing cost-effective mechanisms to reduce significantly the emissions from our existing housing stock. To help people get out of their cars and travel by other means. Developing projects to support local, healthy food and to raise the awareness and understanding of sustainability.

For several years, the City of L-Isla worked toward highlighting its historic center and have gained a reputation of intransigence in patrimonial conservation, arguing that, at the risk of disappearing, ancient architectures cannot undergo normalization and technological evolutions without distinction.
