Eco-village plans given the go-ahead

Eco-village plans given the go-ahead
Eco-villages today moved a step closer with the announcement of the house-builder who will build the first of the projects in the UK.

Barratt Developments has been granted preferred builder status for the development that is planned for Hanham Hall, near Bristol.

At the same time, the government announced details of short-listed developers for a further eco-village project, near Peterborough, and two new sites in the north of England – near to Doncaster and Wigan.

"This first Carbon Challenge site shows that developers are already preparing to build the first major development of zero carbon homes," said housing minister Yvette Cooper.

"These Carbon Challenge eco-villages are now leading the way, showing what can be done. This marks a revolution in the way we design and build homes," she added.

Earlier this year the government announced plans to develop a series of small, zero-carbon eco-towns as a means to contribute to both the building of affordable housing and reducing carbon emissions.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18397537-ADNFCR
