Osnabrück (AFP) The German Association of Towns and Municipalities has blamed too many and too strict regulations for sluggish housing construction. Managing Director Gerd Landsberg told the newspaper "Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung" (Tuesday's edition) that the removal of "superfluous standards and around 20,000 building standards" was "urgently needed". The increase in the number of skilled workers in the thinned out building authorities of the municipalities is also an "important step" in creating quickly affordable housing.
