I should probably add…the legal hassles this guy has had is one of the main concerns about when I deploy my stead.
He risked being fined a huge amount of money and the matter apparently went to court.
Where I’m thinking of deploying my stead though, in an estuary, I’ve seen other house boats. So I might have a better chance of not getting kicked out.
Plus I’ve been informally studying law for a few years now and I know my rights, and to a large extent I know how to defend them, so I think I’m prepared to do legal battle with anyone who interferes (though it won’t be easy, if I have to go up against the government).
I’m thinking that planting mangroves and other plants all over the stead, and turning it into an environmental project (carbon sequestration, walter filtration, etc.) could be a useful way of getting the project seen as a positive for all, and prevent the hassles this poor bloke came up against.
