MEPA again halts Polidano's illegal development
Mepa’s enforcement officers have once more halted development works which were being carried out by Polidano Group without permits at a site adjacent to PoliGas Ltd, which site was sealed in 2012.
In September of last year, the Authority had requested the Police to initiate criminal action against the developer for abusive developments within the Hal Farrug area without the necessary planning permits. Subsequently the Authority together with members of the Police had sealed off the area with concrete blocks.
Earlier this year, the developer had requested permission from the Authority to remove the concrete blocks in order to move some of the plant machinery from the site. The Authority 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.
Mepa has today halted the illegal works that had restarted on site and in the coming days, the Authority will be meeting with representatives of Polidano Group to address this case and discuss other pending planning applications.
