I tried to register a domain with them once. The purchasing wizard failed every time on a page which tried to flog extra services. Makes you wonder about their service quality if you can't even buy something from them....

Re: Best way of achieving this?

I meant under Belgian law, I have no idea how this is enforced here but probably not very different to the situation you describe. Interesting articles, thanks.

Best way of achieving this?

Here we have a law that requires all property developers to reserve a certain percentage of their project for social housing. This to stimulate a social mix of residents rather than having segregated neighbourhoods. I think this system could solve some of the problems described better than just requiring developers to pay a tax which is then used to battle those same developers for land.

Secondly, and it has been stated above already. I don't understand why it's impossible to live at least a bit denser.
