Wales committed to zero-carbon buildings

Wales committed to zero-carbon buildings
The Welsh Assembly has reinforced its commitment to make all new buildings in Wales carbon free by 2011.

Support for the zero carbon building scheme has been offered by the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) which is to host an event in Cardiff to raise awareness of the plan.

The Perspectives on Zero Carbon Building debate will take place at the Wales Millennium Centre next week and will challenge perceived ideas about building a low carbon economy in Wales.

Kay Powell, TCPA Wales representative, explained: "We believe that we can help the Welsh Assembly Government to achieve its ambition on zero carbon - if everyone pulls together.

"Members of the TCPA in Wales - drawn from all sectors - are well placed to take action to support the Assembly Government's zero carbon building aspiration and to help make it a reality."

Jane Davidson, minister for the environment, sustainability and housing, put forward her plan for all new buildings to be zero carbon last March.
