> Most of the residential developments in the last half century has been what are called 'urbanisations'

Any data to back this up? I've checked eurostats [1] and the numbers don't support this assertion: 66% of all dwellings are flats (there are no flats in spanish urbanisations), and only 12% are detached houses (the most common building type in urbanisations).

Also, notice that these numbers are the larger (for % of people living in flats) and smaller (for % of detached houses) in all of Europe!
