Reply To: One-Off Eco House ?
you may get lucky with the individual planner.I know someone building a straw bale house in Carlow who happened to get a planner that had done her thesis on them!. sailed through the process
try get a pre planning discussion w/ the council.(probably will be around 2008 though !)
on the CO2 thing that should be easy to work out but your conditions would probably cover a provision for native species so you may not have enough land to indulge in yr own carbon trading/eco-budget
