§ Mr. William Ross
Studies and developments which have been undertaken in recent years comprise1965—Cumbernauld Development Corporation pilot project "Sectional Housing" (a form of extendible House).1971—NBA report "The Extendible Home1972—Edinburgh Corporation development project for an extendible house.1973—SDD internal report "Low Cost Shell House
These studies have shown the difficulties of appreciably reducing the initial cost of a new house while maintaining adequate standards. Nevertheless if "starter homes" can provide good value for money and meet the requirements of the Building Standards (Scotland) Regulations, they can represent a useful means of widening access to owner occupation in Scotland. This possibility has been discussed with the Scottish Committee of the National House Building Council.
