“Green vacation in the country” or “A mega trend!”: In the relevant magazines, “Tiny Houses” are also gaining popularity as tourist attractions.
Jan Sadowsky, managing director of “Green Tiny Houses GmbH” based in Elmshorn, is also firmly convinced of this.
On Tuesday evening he was a guest at the meeting of the committee for local development and municipal tasks in Weßling.
Weßling - The committee members liked the concept. But that was about it. "Go to the Allgäu," advised Rasso von Rebay (FW).
"Green Tiny Houses" offers minimalist and ecologically built holiday homes. The houses are 22 square meters, have a picture window, 1.80 meter wide beds and a fireplace, plus an 8 square meter terrace. “We only use natural materials,” said Sadowsky, saying that we want to make sustainability tangible. The service water is recycled, "we are a lighthouse project for green tourism". The best thing, however, is: “We can stand where hotels are not allowed to stand.” A sustainable “community” has already formed, and an amount of the rental income is being invested in on-site projects for guests. “We believe that nature makes people's hearts open.” Now Sadowsky is looking for a location in this region.So far, his houses are mainly in northern Germany.
The committee members liked the concept across the board. But they were also agreed that there was no place for it in Weßling. "We already have too much pressure from tourism," said Clemens Pollok (Greens). "Small houses that we put on the last free space - that would be the last thing we would think of." Vice Mayor and chairman Sebastian Grünwald (Greens) saw it similarly: "There is an unbelievable pressure and it is getting denser and denser with us."
Andreas Lechermann (CSU) and Petra Slawisch (Greens) were critical of the development of the locations with water and electricity.
Von Rebay could at least imagine the concept for farmers who still have an area free.
"You have to get away from the metropolis," he said to Sadoswky.
Lilly Reik (FW) saw all of this as less of a problem.
"I would already have one or the other location in mind."
However, the topic is not likely to be seriously pursued.
The committee took note of the statements.
