   I would like to pick out and chew on a couple of sentences.

   "The park authority has always maintained that although it was 
committed to the environment, the roundhouse contravened its planning 
policy. It insisted that a dwelling could not be built in the park 
unless there is a real need ..." 

   Well, we have in our present society many individuals, who have 
been chemically injured ... most people claim they don't know much 
about it. But in fact, know a lot more, once some facts are placed 
beside each other, ie. Sheep Dip Disease/Syndrome, Closed Building 
Syndrome, Gulf War Syndrome, M.E., Multiple Chemical Senisitivity are 
but a few of the names given to people who have to avoid exposures to 
many chemicals, drugs, combustibles, etc. It is a fact WHO, World 
Health Organization has given a figure of the extent of the 
problems ... one billion people, there was no mistake on that, a 

   For some of the sufferers, any exposure is too much, hence "the 
boy in the bubble" ... some try to build special housing only to find 
some physical components used in the house construction give rise to 
adverse medical reactions. So some individuals now live on cliff 
edges to total avoid for "the only effective treatment is avoidance". 

   Should not some of these individuals, living on extreme margins of 
our society, with this disorder, be given a chance to see if these 
low impact dewellings can met some of their medical needs not 
addressed by councils, or adequate in normal housing?
