Abstract: Application PA 4286/99 refers to the construction of apartments and garages at Triq it-Tonn, at the only undeveloped site along the entire Xemxija-Qawra stretch. The application was made back in 1999, and although it was refused on March 20, 2000 and again after a reconsideration was requested on June 8, 2000, it is still pending at appeal stage. A hearing was already held on September 14, and a final one is scheduled for November 16.The appellant even commissioned a report by an archaeologist of his choice to downplay the archaeological value of the site. At the first appeals board meeting, a counter archaeological report, penned by the Integrated Heritage Management Team of MEPA, was tabled. Such a report underscores the fact that the area contains cart ruts and ancient quarries, which merit a Class B designation in terms of Structure Plan policy Arc 2, which states it is very important to preserve such sites, with adequate measures taken to preclude any development.
