With the cost of electricity going up and gas a limited resource, eco friendly houses will soon be the norm rather than the unique homes they are today. Designed to inflict minimal or no harm on the environment, these homes are economical to run and comfortable to live in. Eco friendly homes have an abundance of insulation and may use geothermal heating, solar panels and heat recovery systems to lower energy consumption.

carbon neutral new town
Owenstown, South Lanarkshire
To be announced
Owenstown - Eco Friendly Village
Owenstown is a proposed, eco-friendly, community-owned town which if planning goes through, will be built on a 2,000 acre site in South Lanarkshire. The town is named after Robert Owen, a famous social reformer who created the nearby 18th century settlement of New Lanark, a groundbreaking village built on the principles of improving the living and working conditions of its residents. Owenstown will be a modern interpretation of New Lanark and will be planned carefully to be largely self sufficient. Owned and managed by a co-operative of its citizens, it will be constructed to high environmental standards with renewable energy and will eventually become carbon-zero. If approved, the project will take up to 10 years to complete and could be the blueprint for similar projects in the UK. more
