Slums of the Future

An interesting article by Clover Moore, Lord Mayor of Sydney, in the Daily Telegraph newspaper today starts:
"Small and badly designed apartments might be what some property developers want, but it is no good for the people who actually buy and live in them."
Later the article says:
"What the development lobby wants is to sideline the community's input so some irresponsible developers can build quick and dirty to turn a buck."
Proposed changes to the approval process for commercial developments seem aimed at assisting the developers achieve this.
