Log cabins could be used in Dublin's back gardens to ease housing crisis

Dublin City Council is due to consider planning regulations later this autumn which could allow people to build log cabins in back gardens to be used as homes.

According to the Irish Independent, Councillor John Lyons will put forward a motion to the September meeting of the planning and property development strategic policy committee to discuss amending planning laws so that cabins can be built to help solve the housing crisis. Here's what he told Newstalk Breakfast:
"A reasonable response by some people has been to construct log cabins in the back garden of their parent's home or their friend's home as a way of somewhat temporarily stepping out of the rather overheated private rental market so as to be able to save up some money for a deposit for a home for their families."
