10. Home Orientation

Local building codes should not force homebuilders to build homes with their front sides facing the street if the edge of the proposed home is 50 meters or more away from the property line of the next-door neighbor along the same street. This minimum distance requirement would allow non-uniform housing layouts to be less aesthetically taxing than if houses were right next to each other as in standard neighborhoods. It would also allow developers to take better advantage of solar energy and other environmental benefits as well as alleviating some of the frustrating restrictions associated with home design and building.
