Unfortunately, I know this one is a long-shot, thanks to Bernard Grech's recent statement that the 2006 local plans will not be amended, but I will list it anyway as I feel strongly about it. We should be looking at the current local plans of the island and re-work them to safeguard what little green areas we have and be smarter with the way we develop. These new local plans should be the skeleton plan for the next 50 - 100 years, with only minor review and amendments allowed every 10-20 years due to any major changes that might arise (climate, changing needs of the island)
