Objective of the CHIMP for the
The Biccerija and Manderaggio, Due Balli, Camarata areas
›   Through the development of and implementation of the Cultural
    heritage integrated management plan” (CHIMP), the Local Valletta
    Council will be working towards the following objectives;

›   A) Address the pressing problems in the areas within Valletta as in the
    case of social inclusion and regeneration to create a more sustainable
    community and ultimately long term sustainability.
›   B) Further the concept of WHC within these core and surrounding
    areas of Valletta which has not been tackled with the necessary
    political and administrative clout or governance,
›   C) Analyse together the possibilities of re-launching these areas to
    highlight their importance within Valletta as a WHC
›   D) Tap into possible funds by using the CHIMP document at a UNESCO
    level to further develop coherent strategies to further support these
    sites,
›   E) Further develop and exchange experiences at a management and
    administration level through the involvement of both the LSG and the
    people of these localities,
›   The development of the CHIMP would also enhance and contribute
    towards the liveability of the city centre once implemented within this
    locality. The balance to harmonise redevelopment and regeneration in
    line with the conservation of historic fabric depends on the integration
    of heritage and redevelopment planning.

Intended Result / Output

›   The “Cultural heritage integrated management plans” (CHIMP) will see
    the integration of various studies which have previously be undertaken
    within this area .
›   The CHIMP will set the parameters for the regeneration areas and the
    various strategic actions necessitated to implement this document.
›   The CHIMP will include two sections one referring to the socio-
    economic strategy. This will include the intergration of documents
    such as Support for Cities and the Urbact SURCH (2007-08) and Entrust
    document ‘Revitalising the Biccerija area’.
›   The second section of the CHIMP will investigate the possibilities of
    inclusion through involving social partners in social inclusion through
    cultural heritage and other means such as enhancing existing
    landscaping and the development of derelict buildings.

Intended Result / Output

›   The area is endowed with tangible and intangible heritage assets. The
    fabric of the area is authentic and critical in nature with elements
    including; Romano Carapecchia’s Church, the Biccerija, a series of
    Churches and Chapels, the Auberge d’Aragon and the Auberge de
    Baviere, systems of fortifications and palatial residential buildings.
›   In the Grand Harbour Local Plan/ Valletta Local Plan the area GV03 and
    GV01 are marked as a Housing Improvement Action Area and a
    Residential area respectively. The Marsamxett area has been included
    in the Brief for St. Elmo and the Environs (MEPA 1999) and in the Vision
    for Fort St. Elmo and the Port of Marsamxett (MITI 2007) and it is
    earmarked as an area for regeneration and renewal as part of the
    integrated nodes for Valletta and the Grand Harbour. It is envisaged
    that through CHIMP the VLC will be able to develop these areas into
    sustainable and thriving hub s SMEs thus regenerating and employing
    the local population.
›    Sustainable development is also highly dependable on a living and
    thriving community which may be achieved through an integrated
    policy which targets the sustainable conservation of the historic
    landscape.

    overall framework for the CHIMP
›   Further meetings with stakeholders whilst developing the CHIMP and feeding their
    input into the documentation
›   Presentation of CHIMP to wider community
›   The development of the which will describe the proposed approach and methodology
    for conducting the CHIMP study formats for baseline and survey of area sources for
    secondary data collection, guidelines for LSG and select sample locations based on

Obstacles so far preparing / elaborating the CHIMP /
integrating the LSG (IMPORTANT HERE FOR LSG)
›   Lack of time to develop the LAG and
    arrange meetings which enables
    everyone to attend.
›   Not enough time to gain deep links with
    these localities and the people which live
    within these areas.
›   Too many documents have been written
    about these area (although many can not
    be obtained easily) which has ultimately
    resulted in nothing being undertaken
    towards the regeneration of this area as
    no decision has been made as to which
    document should be used as a
    benchmark.
›   The difficulty to exceed to ERDF Funding
    on a Local Council level. Generally it is
    the Central Government especially in the
    light that the City is State (representing
    Seat of Government)
›   The difficulty to have the National
    Authority on the Local Support Group.
›   Essentially transmitting objectives to
    sound and tangible Actions backed by
    sufficient financial and economic clout.

Questions to the partners in support of the
elaboration of the CHIMP / integrating the LSG
(IMPORT HERE FOR LAG GROUP)
    What level is the CHIMP elaborating the assessment and
     evaluation of the area prior to the essential development of
     objectives and actions?

    Will the CHIMP be fully entrenched in the Municipality / Local
     Council priorities and Budgets?

    What targets is the CHIMP addressing – Is it solely objectives
     based on Priority Axis Objectives on a regional/city level or are
     there other possible aims and project parameters which go
     beyond OP Budget definitions.
