Company should gift housing land
Dear Sir, — I read Dr Peter Hirst’s letter, “Environmental features for future homes” in a recent Chronicle with great pleasure; indeed it is the very letter I would like to have written.
He is absolutely right. There is no reason these days not to include the features he has listed, some of which were inclusion of solar panels, facilities for collecting rainwater, electric car charging points and state of the art insulation of all exterior interfaces.
These could so easily be costed to cover social housing by being put against the price of larger builds on the same site.
