Illegal development resumes at Polidano site
Construction magnate Charles Polidano has resumed illegal development at his Ħal Farruġ headquarters, six months after the police were asked to take action over environmental abuse.
Work started again just before the election, despite enforcement notices and action in September when the area was sealed off.
A Mepa spokesman said enforcement officers had twice gone to the site, and warned that the authority reserves the right to take further legal action.
Attempts to contact Charles Polidano were unsuccessful. His brother Paul said they had only “cleaned” the site. When it was pointed out to him that photographic comparisons showed that concrete was poured onto a large area, he said: “I don’t know, OK, I don’t know. Bye.”
The contractors have began erecting what looks like a concrete warehouse, over hundreds of square metres of land.
