Abstract: A new broom must sweep clean and therefore the new Cabinet is expected to deliver on its environmental pledges. This column has repeatedly harped on what needs to be done for a better environment. As the Government starts off its five-year term, I would like to make some requests, which are often ignored. All Outside Development Zone (ODZ) decisions should be vetted by the Malta Environment and Planning Authority auditor and permits revoked if necessary. NGOs should be informed on a weekly basis of all submitted and pending ODZ applications and all relevant documentation has to be made available. The sanctioning of ODZ illegalities has to stop at once. In 2007, Mepa 'closed' 449 enforcement cases. Of these, 328 were sanctioned.
