Yes they will accept it if you can prove that the ground is OK to support it, the edges wont crack in shear when the walls are built on them, and you can insulate it on top.
thats interesting woody,, i thought it may have been a daft qeustion to ask the BCO,,, but i suppose what have i got to loose,,,
