Low carbon communities to be designed



Low carbon communities to be designed
A designer has been commissioned to turn local communities in Scotland into low carbon zones.

Andres Duany is to work on projects in Dumfries, Aberdeen and Fife, holding design workshops in these areas to help the country move towards a greener future.

He is best known for his designs used in the southern parts of the US which needed to be rebuilt after the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

The scheme has been backed by the Scottish government, which is keen to create communities that offer a good quality of life to residents and allow them to keep their carbon footprints to a minimum.

Alex Neil, housing minister for Scotland, said that the project has "the potential to put Scotland at the forefront of new approaches to planning and development and will attract world-wide interest and recognition of Scottish planning, design and creations".

He added that it would also "provide opportunities for Scotland's construction sector" and would help the industry create jobs and position itself for economic recovery.
