This 50 page guide to sustainable housing schemes is designed to take the reader through a broad range of such projects in the UK, covering many of the economic, social and environmental aspects of sustainability.
In the main section of key case studies a page is devoted per project with quick reference to a whole range of criteria such as access arrangements. A second section covers other projects which further illustrate the experience of those key case studies, or where information was harder to collect. The examples show the wide divfersity of options available and the different ways others are attempting to lead more sustainable lives.
We hope that the information in the guide will inspire and help others to create more sustainable housing by showing what others have achieved, often with few resources but a heavy dose of enthusiasm.
