earth sheltered homes

Comment 17th July 2010

Applications for earth sheltered homes which are normally very eco friendly should not be subjected to the strict considerations which apply to green belt applications, currently they are.

Applications for basement extensions, ie digging under an existing house to create extra living space should also be more favourably looked at, as a positive way to create extra living space without spoiling the beautiful landscapes which are usually either greenbelt or area of outstanding natural beauty.

These two easements would help with the shortage of homes, create work, create profit, and be beneficial in every way without being detrimental to the environment.

Why does this matter?

The approach of greater leniency towards applications for earth sheltered homes in the suburbs and basement space in the metropolis would go some way to helping with the chronic shortage of living space while not being detrimental to the environment, or the greenbelt.

It would create homes, create work, create profit – all beneficial to the general situation, and not be detrimental to the environment.
