The Planning Authority yesterday 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.

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 full cost of the direct action will be borne by the contravenor.
