New Eco Village for Devon
A new 'Eco village' planned on the outskirts of Plymouth is expected to create sustainable jobs and see up to 86 zero carbon houses and flats built.
Plymouth City Council has unveiled the plans for Bickleigh Down after selling land to developers CornerstoneZED - they're going to be working with the council on the UK's first large scale zero carbon community - zero carbon homes don't add any extra carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.
The eco village itself will include a community with a mix of affordable and market homes with up to 66 houses and 20 flats and the opportunity for self build.
Each home will generate enough energy so residents could get payment back from their local energy provider.
An on site facility will employ up to 33 people to assemble the homes with the opportunity to stay in work for longer when other zero carbon communities are developed around the country; 26 futher jobs will be created at a green business hub designed at encouraging other green firms to come to Plymouth.
