The Malta Environment and Planning Authority said in a statement this afternoon that development works which were being carried out without planning permission at a site in the area of Hal Farrug, adjacent to PoliGas Ltd have been stopped.
The MEPA satement said that over the past few days, its enforcement officers “noticed that works started to resume on a site which a few months ago had been sealed off with concrete blocks. These blocks had been removed after the developer requested permission from the Authority to remove some of the plant machinery from on the site.”
The Authority said that it “warned the developer that should any illegal works resume on site the place will once again be sealed off with concrete blocks, resulting in disruptions to the operation of his other permitted development.” In the coming days, the Authority will be meeting with representatives of Polidano Group to address this case and discuss other pending planning applications.
In September 2012, following several warnings, the Authority said that it requested the Police to initiate criminal action against the developer for abusively carrying out a series of developments within the Hal Farrug area without the necessary planning permits.
