Remaining available space

Traffic service and utilities
Roads, wheel tracks and paths can be established near facilities and buildings.
It is possible to establish technical supply plants for, respectively, power, water and sewerage to locally supply each area. Facilities for capturing fresh-water, sewage discharge as well as major power supply plants can only be established following permission by the Government of Greenland. It is possible to establish technical supply plants, such as generators as well as solar cells or other power production facilities, near a few huts.
All facilities that are not directly related to the area’s recreational facilities are to be established in a manner that ensures that using them does not cause any inconvenience to neighbours, such as noise, smoke, odours, vibrations or the like.
Solid waste is either to be incinerated or transported away. Incineration is to entail no risk to surrounding buildings or nature, nor is it to cause inconvenience to anyone.
For night soil, it is possible to use sanitary buckets. The content is either to be emptied directly into the sea, composted or disposed of in such a manner that it does not cause inconvenience to anyone or the surrounding nature. Wastewater from existing houses with a water closet is to be disposed of in the same manner.
