What is land development in Malta like, according to the State of the Environment Report 2005?

The Times of Malta today published a synopsis of the report by MEPA. The full article can be read by clicking here.

Some facts from the report:

¤ 23 per cent of Malta is urbanised, yet 23 per cent of dwellings are temporarily or permanently uninhabited.
¤ Between 2002 and August 2005, 89 historical sites and areas were protected under the Development Planning Act, covering 167 hectares of fortifications in the Grand Harbour and Mellieha areas and at Fort Chambray in Gozo.
¤ 0.09 per cent of Malta's agricultural land is under organic cultivation.
