Infringement Report : Munxar to Xlendi Road

Infringement report filed on 6th March to MEPA

Name : Ramblers Association of Malta
Address : c/o 24 Sir Adrian Dingli Street, Sliema

Description of infringement :
No less than 13 iron poles have been erected (without permit affixed anywhere) seemingly to take electrical supply to an out-building the use of which is unknown but certainly not used for habitation purposes. This area is known as Ta' Sanap and is close to the cliffs. It is very ecologically sensitive and protected under various denominations of conservation. The work was undertaken very speedily during election week and the visual impact together with the cost involved certainly does not render the exercise viable environmentally and economically. It is recommended that the poles are removed at once as was done in Bahrija, and an appropriate investigation into the matter opened if there is no permit.

MEPA's answer received 11th March:
Your complaint was investigated.
Below mentioned electricity poles are subject to Enforcement Notice ECF 494/07.
Currently there is a pending application PA 6256/07 "to sanction erection of poles".
