Reasons To Disagree
Does lower cost mean lower quality? Do people in a new suburb want poorer people next door, or would people want to live in the designated poor house? There are many ways for goverment to generally encouage their own housing developments or to minimise demand on housing without regulating every individual building project

This could lead to the situation where we have 'the poor persons house' in the street, and if the house was the same quality as all the others speculators could just hop in and grab the cheap house in the new area and sell at a big profit. I can't see how it would work.

low cost housing is a burdon on society. it should be outlawed. Concentrate on making people richer, not houses sh!tter!

NONSENSE - developers should NOT be told what they must do - it is their decision to make - not Nannies!

This is absurd! Remember what happened to the CCTV building in Christchurch? You will be responsible one day for the death of people in a building like that...!
