Asking what makes some districts more desirable to live in than others is like asking why red sportcars are more popular than pick-up trucks. It’s obvious, isn’t it? Jeremy King explains
Have you ever wondered why we live where we live? You may have thought that developers use a ‘pin the tail on the donkey’ approach to choosing the next residential hub, or that, like a flock of sheep, we see one person moving to a desirable looking area in pastures new and get this overwhelming urge to follow. You may be surprised to learn then that there is, in fact, an anthropological reason behind where we reside. There’s even a scientific formula to explain it.
The City of Perth has declared part of the city a conservation area, restricting future development.
Councilors voted last night to declare Barrack Street a conservation area from south of Hay Street through to Wellington Street.

PHNOM PENH, July 31 (Xinhua) -- Cambodia's Council of Ministers on Friday approved a sub-decree of new co-ownership regulations, allowing legal ownership of individual apartments or condominium ownership, which paves the way for a law allowing foreign ownership of some property.
The new co-ownership regulations will make it possible to own units within a larger building without having title to the land it's on, according to the press release from the weekly meeting of the Council of Ministers which was presided over by Prime Minister Hun Sen.
If you plan on staying in Cambodia for more than a few months, you will probably want to rent a place to call your own. This is particularly true for foreigners, who cannot easily own land.
As in any country, it is imperative that the parties put down their agreement in a properly signed, valid contract. Without one, you could end up paying more in rent than agreed, find someone else sharing your living room, or even out on the street. With the advice in this guide, patience, and common sense, you should be comfortably settled into your new home.

Signa, of Hebrew origin, means sign or symbol.

Phnom Penh’s skyline continues to be transformed by new office towers, dual-use developments and apartment blocks. There is no doubt the construction sector is on the way up but, as the industry is in its infancy, it is interesting to note what standards exist to regulate development, and how do they compare with practices in the developed world.
Recent development projects in Kampot including an international seaport, a luxury resort on Bokor mountain and a restoration of the road linking the province to Phnom Penh have caused local land prices to soar.
According to a recent report from the Council for the Development of Cambodia, a US$15 million, 145-hectare Special Economic Zone (SEZ) is also being readied in Kampot, which will begin operation as soon as work begins on the US$4 million, 1,000 hectare seaport - hoped to be complete by 2013.
