      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
      billion.

      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?

      Need some references:
      See article in Guardian Review last weekend, May 20 & 21, 2004 [have
      not read it myself yet, having too many medical problems to go to the
      library to see it myself, but been told about it];
      <www.mcsinternational.org> UK; want to look at the leading medical
      theory on fatique, M.E. and MCS ... follow Prof. Martin Pall,
      Washington State University in U.S. "nitric oxide" [put his
      name "Martin Pall" into Google]; see a list of 600 plus peer reviewed
      articles [updated only to 1999] <www.mcsrr.org>; want only the
      housing detail, come and hear a research specialist, Dr. Virginia
      Salares, Canada Mortgage and Housing, at the third MCS International
