Abstract: Scouring through the new master plan unveiled for Paceville which is currently open for public consultation, one stumbles across the proposals for site 6 – Portomaso. Despite being given the green light in 2014 to develop 46 bungalows around an artificial lagoon, Portomaso has not yet satiated its hunger for land. The only difference this time round is that applicant had to come to terms with a major constraint – availability of land – and thus the spectre of land reclamation has reared its head. In fact, the master plan is proposing the reclamation of 125,000 square metres of the seabed, of which one-third would be built-up, such that the new Portomaso promontory would flank the Dragonara casino one.
