MAINS GAS FOR INFILL VILLAGES

MAINS GAS FOR INFILL VILLAGES

LEGISLATION TO MAKE HOUSING DEVELOPERS PAY FOR MAINS GAS FOR VILLAGES WITH NO MAINS GAS SUPPLY AND WHERE GAS IS AVAILABLE NEARBY

Why is this important?

VILLAGES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY ARE EXPECTED TO PROVIDE EXTRA HOUSING WITH A PARTICULAR REQUIREMENT OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING. FOR SUCH HOUSING TO HAVE MAINS GAS SHOULD BE A RIGHT TO HAVE PAID FOR BY THE DEVELOPERS OF THIS EXTRA HOUSING JUST AS THE SUPPLY OF WATER AND ELECTRICITY IS. GAS IS MORE EFFICIENT FOR HEATING THAN ELECTRICITY AND OIL OR DELIVERED PROPANE IS VERY EXPENSIVE.

THIS WILL BE IMPORTANT FOR THOSE WITH YOUNG FAMILIES AND THE ELDERLY IN PARTICULAR.

VEHICLES DELIVERING OIL OR PROPANE (CALOR) ARE POLLUTING THE AIR AND CAUSING EXTRA WEAR TO WHAT ARE OFTEN NARROW COUNTRY ROADS AND A MAINS GAS SUPPLY WOULD OVERCOME THESE NEGATIVE ASPECTS COMPLETELY.


Reasons for signing

  • This should be a fundamental requirement - same as sewage!
