There is much new development taking place across the country, much of which is high rise tower blocks. There is the technology available to provide green energy supply, together with water purification recyclable to premises as grade 1 drinking water within each new high rise tower block. It is understood that Building Regulations and Health and Safety Regulation require a safety barrier around the roof of all high rise developments.

It is possible to erect solar panels around the edge of the roof, in order to act as a safety barrier, together with bladeless wind turbines in the centre of the roof in order to supply green electricity to all flats, shops etc within the building. It is also possible to garner all rain falling on the roof into a water purification plant installed in the basement, together with all waste water, (including hard waste). This water can be used within the block and prevent water being delivered through underground pipes from a reservoir many miles away. It will also prevent waste water being conveyed, again, through underground pipes, to a water treatment plant many miles away.

New developments of low rise proportions can also have solar panels erected on the roof in order to provide green electricity to the building.

At present none of the above are being installed, as they are not required by legislation.

We, the undersigned, do petition HM Government to enact legislation requiring developers to install green energy supply and waste water purification plants to all high rise, above 10 storey, buildings and to install solar energy plants to the roofs of all new developments below 10 storey.
