Di­rect action by Plan­ning Author­ity in ODZ site in Sig­giewi

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Plan­ning Author­ity on Thurs­day started a di­rect action op­er­a­tion on a pris­tine ODZ site in Wied Qirda, lim­its of Siġġiewi.

Through this op­er­a­tion, the author­ity’s en­force­ment per­son­nel started re­mov­ing tons of in­ert ma­te­rial which has il­le­gally been dumped on this site area, known as Tal-Bil­bli, as early as 2005, the PA said in a state­ment.

Over the past months, the author­ity no­ticed that fur­ther dump­ing was tak­ing place and that the en­force­ment no­tice was be­ing breached. The Author­ity started to im­pose a daily fine and or­dered the con­tra­venor to start re­mov­ing all the dumped con­struc­tion ma­te­rial within an agreed time­frame.

This agree­ment was not hon­oured by the con­tra­venor, leav­ing the author­ity with no other op­tion but to carry out the di­rect action it­self. The full cost of the op­er­a­tion will be borne by the con­tra­venor, the PA said.
