About Us

Stop Bungalow Chaos (The Campaign for Sustainable Rural Housing) is a not-for-profit voluntary campaign group which has been established with the sole purpose of promoting national awareness of the economic, social and environmental issues associated with rural ‘one –off’ dispersed housing in Ireland and to mobilise mainstream momentum for a radically changed policy approach.

Despite persistent public discourse about the issue in recent years, progress on formulating an appropriate policy strategy to deal with the issue has been paralysed by absolutist positions together with the often highly emotional, irrational and political nature of the debate. Indeed the last Oireachtas Environment Sub-Committee to discuss this simply issued a menu of policy recommendations that satisfied everyone and concluded that more research needed to be undertaken. This effectively perpetuated the shibboleth of the past – inaction.
