In most of Europe, it is currently perfectly legal to live in a caravan or camper or log cabin, any temporary dwelling in fact, without planning or other permissions on land which you own.
In this country it is not allowed. What I would like to see is the abilty for those who wished to, to live full time on their own land, in a temporary dwelling.
Why does this idea matter?
With the housing crisis that we have, it seems completely absurb that so many people who care desparately for the enviroment, cannot live in a simple sustainable way on their own piece of land.
Most people who wish to do this are not strange new age travellers – I used to be a bank manager. I would just like to live a very simple life, pay what taxes I have to, and leave as small a footprint on this earth as possible. Please let me and thousands like me, have a chance to do so.
Thanks for this opportunity to voice my opinion.
