Why vacant land or plot monitoring is essential in hill stations?
Apart from encroachment possibilities, hills are known for continuous rains at monsoons, during which tree-fall and land erosion is common. Hence a visit to the vacant land or plot in hill stations at specific intervals is required.
Why vacation homes in hill station need to be monitored?
Normally vacation homes at hill stations are used during summer to beat the heat and vacations. Rest of the time, it remains unused, yet disturbed – a broken glass in a window can pave way to birds and creatures to enter and inhabit.
Continuous fall of leaves on the terrace (flat roof construction) could choke the drain, leading to rain water ingression into home during monsoon and damaging the roof subsequently.
More importantly, hill stations are known for tourist floating population and there is a definite chance of misuse by the caretakers by renting it to travelers (without the owner’s knowledge) which is illegal. Hence building monitoring in a hill station at specific interval is a must and wise thing to do.
