MELITA CABLE TECHNICAL CENTRE, MADLIENA LANDSCAPING PROPOSAL. The site is located on the prow of a hill in Madliena, an outstanding rural environment with a limited sprawl of development whilst the building complex itself, is surrounded by a reasonable large area with a neighbouring fort. The proposals aim to return the disturbed landscape of the site back into a setting, which blends and merges with the immediate natural surroundings whilst providing an enhanced foothold for the location of a new building with a low profile. In this landscaping proposal two zones, which are indicated on the attached plans can be clearly distinguished as follows: A) The Architectural Landscaping: The central zone within the site that embraces the building complex, and B) The Contextual Landscaping: These landscaped areas skirt the site and each relate immediately and directly to the countryside that they border. Note: For both zones the species that dictate this landscape proposal have been taken from the Guidelines on Trees, Shrubs and Plants for Planting and Landscaping in the Maltese Islands (1999), Environmental Management Unit Planning Directorate.

Appendix B: Reservoir volume calculation 1RESERVOIR VOLUME CALCULATION.Due to weather conditions of Malta, the importance of preserving the waterresources of the island and the important role played by the landscapedareas in every development, it is strongly recommended to provide areservoir, which could satisfy the irrigation needs of the landscaped area ofthe development without resorting to external sources to provide water.The landscaped area marked in the plan V31 – MMA – P016 is approximately540 m2.The Reservoir Volume is the result of multiplying the landscaped area by theannual average water deficit.Water deficit (l/m2) = [Rainfall (l/m2) – ETP (l/m2)]/ Irrigation efficiency J F M A M J J A S O N D YearRainfall 89 61,3 40,9 22,5 6,6 3,2 0,4 0,7 40,4 89,7 90 112,3 547ETP 15,97 15,604 36,06 41,893 71,278 96,022 120,62 114,96 87,365 77,775 40,826 21,259 739, 641Water 21,547 71,864 103, 133, 126, 52,183 509, 135 581 956Deficit 267Rainfall (data from 30 years)ETP has been calculated by the Thornwaite/Blaney-Criddle method (datafrom 30 years).To calculate the water deficit an irrigation efficiency of 0.9 has beenconsidered, provide there is a correct and intelligent handling of the irrigationsystem.Volume of the reservoir required for landscaped area.509,267 (l/m2) x 540 (m2) + 15% Volume for clearance = 317 m3 1
