environmentally friendly housing should be a priority

Proper ecohouses should be mandatory rather than houses build for the least possible cost and greatest profit to the developer. Home developments should be carbon neutral and should be aimed at providing housing, work and leisure spaces and facilities for all - singles (young and old), couples, families with lots of green spaces and bike spaces around them and not too many car parking spaces. See ecovillage network for ideas. Sewage can be treated with a living machine or reeed bed system. Houses can even be constructed of recycled materials.

Why the contribution is important

Because we need to miniimise our use of vaulable resources and cut our energy bills. We need to provide developments that cater for everyone, so that folk do not have to travel to work or for leisure and less frequently for shopping and so they can have a better quality of life. We are currently damaging our planet and ultimatley all ( plants, animals and people) who live on it, by overuse of resources and lack of care over how we live.
