Zebbiegh development permit approved
An Environment Planning Commission this afternoon approved a permit for a basement and garages, flats and two penthouses on an already approved development at Mgarr, limits of Zebbiegh.
The commission, chaired by Franco Sinagra, imposed a number on conditions on the developer including that the works should be monitored by an archaeologist approved by the Superintendence of Cultural Heritage and according to terms of reference issued by the superintendence.
No works, including rock cutting could be carried out to the north of the site, where there are a number archaeological remains. Any rock cutting could only take place following a full archaeological evaluation.
During the meeting, Astrid Vella of Flimkien ghal-Ambjent Ahjar, pointed that the developer had breached a number of previous permit conditions in other permits.
However, Mr Sinagra pointed out that he could only take decision on this particular permit, without going into what had happened previously.
