Land Expropriation Unit

​The Land Expropriate Unit was set up in 2017. The Ministry for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects is aware that some expropriation cases have been pending for quite a number of years. Keeping in mind that the Ministry inherited the Works Department files, which for decades incorporated the ex-Water Works Department, the ex-Roads Department, and the Ex Housing Department, this issue cannot be addressed without an action plan to evaluate, validate, and quantify the problem, which is complex and extensive, even in view of the myriad of files which deal with expropriations, some of which are voluminous. This action plan has to involve other stakeholders such as the Lands Authority, Transport Malta, the Office of the Attorney General and others.

Further to the established plan of action agreed upon, each expropriation file needs to be examined to determine its status and the best way forward.
