SMITH (C) Sadeen exit Zonqor for Smart City land swap KURT SANSONE SMART City will relinquish a parcel of land to government, in a deal that paves the way for the American Uni- versity of Malta's relocation, Malta- Today has learnt. The new agreement with Smart City is expected to be tabled in parliament as part of a back-to-back arrange- ment, that includes AUM giving up its title on land at Żonqor in Marsas- kala. Sources said government will not fork out a cent in this land-swap. AUM will relinquish the Żonqor site it was granted in 2015 and be re-assigned a similar-sized area at Smart City. "A new agreement was required with Smart City to satisfy contrac- tual milestones and part of the deal includes returning part of the land to government," the sources said. The land transferred back to gov- ernment at Smart City includes the area earmarked in 2016 for a new tourism school campus, and for which planning permits remain pending.
