Where I used to work made a car park by reclaiming a steep bank, think of that with the car park at the top of it.

 

I watched them build it.  It was just earth. Built up in layers using a former to get the angle right., Reinforcing meshing at the outside edge and turf laid as they went, then the soil compacted before moving up to the next layer.

 

Parking your car for 8 hours a day at the top of that was one thing, I am not so sure I would want to live at the bottom. In particular who is responsible for repairing or maintaining it?

 

It just shows the stupidity of our planning system that land like that, which is not rteally "ideal" for building on gets planning, but I bet an adjacent flat field would not.

I'd hate to be under the runoff from that when it buckets down!
