Riddled with loopholes and stretched like a rubber band, planning rules for ODZ development are contributing to more buildings in pristine countryside, environmentalist Alan Deidun warns.

In a candid interview with Times Talk, Prof. Deidun speaks of the relative ease with which 'some' architects obtain planning permits for construction in outside development zones.

He also cringes at the bout of environmental consciousness politicians of all hues showed when the Azure Window in Dwejra collapsed and does not resist commenting on the irony of those who wept at the loss while parking their car on endemic plants as they snapped pictures of the window that was.

The 10-minute interview with Prof. Deidun will go online tomorrow in the next episode of Times Talk.
