Countryside residents may need to sign up to electrical courses

The new Right to Build initiative launched by the government could mean that residents of rural areas may benefit from electrical courses.

People living in the countryside might be allowed to build homes without planning permission, in an effort to provide affordable housing in such regions.

If residents decide they have the time and energy to go through with such projects, they may find they need to complete electrical courses if new homes are going to be set up correctly.

"The government believes there are many rural communities eager to see more houses built to stop the countryside, as ministers put it, becoming a museum," BBC UK affairs correspondent Tom Symonds told BBC News.

It is part of Prime Minister David Cameron's Big Society initiative, which aims to empower communities to take control of certain projects such as post offices and libraries, according to a speech made by the politician in Liverpool this week.
