The Malta Environment and Planning Authority, MEPA, has approved the application for the re-construction of the Wignacourt Gate in Fleur de Lys. The application was filed by the Birkirkara Local Council. This gate was part of the aqueduct system which brought water from Landrijiet and Fidden to Valletta. It was not only a highly decorative Baroque structure but it was also watershed for the water levels. It was the penultimate stop before this important water system went underground in the St Joseph Tower, a few hundred meter s int Hamrun.
Badly damaged in an accident in the war years, the arch was removed to make way for the road leading to Mriehel.
Another application for a medieval playing field was also approved by MEPA. This application, filed by the Mdina Local Council seeks to recreate a medieval ambience in a playingfield for children near Mdina.
In the meantime MEPA has also approved the request for from the San Gwann Bocci Club to build a new club house in the limits of the area known as taz-Zwejt.
