As the housing situation is only going to get worse why don't local governments and councils allow more static caravan sites become residential?.

I know many people that would love to live in there static caravans but are not allowed because they must nit use it as a postal address, many retired couples already are as good as living in them 10 months of the year but have to return home as most sites must close for 6 weeks to 8 weeks of the year. If councils gave permission to turn them residential, then many people could sell or rent out there homes this putting many more homes on the market. All that you old then need is to make the caravan owners pay A band council tax for local services. Also councils could buy or use available land and turn them into static residential sites, better then covering them in houses. They could pre buy static caravans on a bulk deal and rent them out this helping to reduce council waiting lists, especially as most static caravans are much better accommodation than the houses they build these days, also much better than housing people in dangerous high rise flats that are highly flamible..

reality is if it was council owned then it wouldn't look anything like that. plus brits mostly think of caravans as beneath them and embarrassing to say you lived in one. there's a stigma attached to caravans and it's not going to go overnight.

by the way I do think the idea is great as I've been in the council waiting list myself for over 16 years now and still no sign of getting something and each year my rent rises until one day I doubt I'll be able to afford to live here. the government need to get rid of the right to buy policy and build more social housing.

As big as many bungalows and flats, for many years we were a family of 5 living in a small 2 bed bungalow. 3 bedroom static would have given us much more room.

Why don't we live Underground, plenty of countries have homes Underground or in caves because its cool in summer warm in winter. We could have fields full of homes and crops all you need is a few skylights and air vents, you could have a few homes under every field

Wouldn't work, although i agree with the idea.

So for me the reason it wouldn't work is that, it isn't the best use of space remaining, there is not an infinite amount of area to build on and building/having say 50 of these houses would take up more room than say a town house (narrow but 3 stories high) as there is minimum distances they need to be apart to prevent fire spreading. Clearly though high rises are not the way forward either and a solution needs to be found.

Personally i think people need to buy less and have household items that have more than one function. Prevent large companies from buying huge amounts of land to then charge ground rent on would be a good start.

That looks a bit more expensive than a static caravan!

I think the rich people should live in the fancy cave houses and the poor people could live in caravans on top of them. A new concept in multi storey living.

Goran from the Tim henman era. He is very tall.
I went to a comprehensive
I've never watched x factor, do you think I have a chance ?
I'm not reet crackin' at CPR either. You could ask my husband but you'd have to hold a seance. It's harder than it looks on casualty.
