first_img SharePrint <a href=’;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a> Arnold Cassola stated that no permit should be issued by the Planning Authority (PA) for MIDI to excavate half a metre deep into Manoel Island’s seabed. This is because he believes that the both the island and the seabed around it are of archaeological importance.MIDI was set up in 1992 in response to an international call by the Government for the redevelopment of Tigné Point and Manoel Island. By virtue of a public deed, the company had acquired the Emphyteutical Land at Tigné Point and Manoel Island from the Government of Malta for 99 years. These commenced in June 2000.Read: Planning Authority gives green light to Manoel Island developmentIn March 2019, the PA gave MIDI the green light for the planned mega-development on Manoel Island. The outline development permit, which is an amendment to the one approved in 1999, grants the construction of 610 apartments on Manoel Island.However, Cassola states that due to infilling around the island’s coast, archaeological remains may lie buried, undiscovered. He concludes that “the island itself and the sea surrounding it are an area of archaeological importance”, which is why he stresses that no permit should be issued prior to an archaeological investigation.He attached a 1909 “Valletta Harbours” Admiralty chart (nautical chart) which shows how the British authorities at the time had infilled the coast around Manoel Island, particularly the South coast. Manoel Island had been taken over by the British military in 1800 and remained under their jurisdiction until Independence in 1964.Read: ‘Clay pottery remains found around Manoel Island’ – CassolaFurthermore, in March, Cassola had explained that after a press conference he did with archaeologist Reuben Grima, a British man had taken to Facebook to post pictures of broken pottery from the Roman era found at the Manoel Island site. He had also said that he had spoken to another person who brought him pieces of broken pottery he had picked off the coast.Arnold Cassola – FacebookAccording to Cassola, the man had explained that the pieces of pottery were found close to the coast while diving with his team to survey the area. The British man had said that there is a chance that, apart from pottery, there is also a shipwreck of a vessel discovered during the Royal Fleet days, from when it was based on Manoel Island.WhatsApplast_img read more
