Abstract: It s no secret that the Malta Environment and Planning Authority (MEPA) grinds to a halt during the Christmas recess. Yet the number of outrageous planning applications certainly does not fizzle out during this period ... on the contrary, there is a certain upsurge which somehow coincides with MEPA's shutdown. Going through the planning applications published in The Malta Independent on Saturdays, one comes up with quite a staggering list: December 4 - five Outside Development Zone (ODZ) applications, referring mainly to farm extensions and demolition of 'ruins' and their replacement with villas with pools in Kercem, Nadur (close to 11-Qortin) and Qala (Gozo) and Mellieha (including Qammiegh, Malta). The definition of 'farm' and 'ruins' could be tenuous at times.
