Equally controversial... only uglier

The ODZ area at Żonqor Point has attracted a lot of controversy over the last couple of years due to the proposed American University of Malta project. A very large part of the peninsula is earmarked for development, and the campus developers Sadeen asked the Planning Authority to green-light the beginning of the construction yesterday. Now, however, it seems like something else has beaten the AUM to the punchline.

In an email sent to Lovin Malta, a person who wishes to stay anonymous has shared photos of dozens of caravans at Żonqor Point on the site of the proposed university. "It has become a caravan jungle," the person said. "And they all don't have any permits. There are no toilets or sanitary facilities, and some even use pallets to form a surrounding patio. They each illegally occupy more than 20 square metres of public land, and there are more than 30 of them!"

Yep, you read all of that right... Malta now seems to have an illegal Caravanland. Gives a whole new meaning to "trid tara biex temmen".

As if all of that wasn't enough, some of the caravan owners seem to have also built structures which act as makeshift garages for their jet skis, and yes, this is an actual sentence we're writing in 2017.

Despite all the protests against the ODZ land at Żonqor Point being used as a university campus, it seems like sometimes, the people's worst enemies are themselves.
