This unique site covers a wide range of sustainable housing and construction issues.
This site provides:
- General and local information on sustainable housing and sustainable construction, including the educational and development activities of The Somerset Trust for Sustainable Development.
- Free downloads in various parts of the site for those that are working in similar directions on these issues
- An emphasis on simpler and affordable approaches to sustainable construction.
- We aim to cover every aspect of sustainable construction from 'smart house' to 'low impact', from village halls to workshops and light industrial units, and from hands-on building projects to local and regional government strategy on sustainable construction, and community based approaches to sustainable development.
The idea is to demystify the issues rather than complicate them.
Practical definitions and details are contained within the site; in general sustainable housing means:
More Efficient - Lower Bills - More Natural - More Local - High Quality - More Healthy
