Interest in green property reported

There was a lot of interest in property-related environmental issues at this week's Greenbuild Expo event in Manchester, it has emerged.

According to Steve Oxley, deputy editor at sustain magazine, the opening day on Wednesday was "very good and very busy", while many of the attendees showed they were "very interested in sustainability and environmental issues".

Exhibitors involved in the event, which was held at Manchester Central, included the Centre for Alternative Technology and the Northern Housing Consortium.

The occasion, which drew to a close today, comes after the director of sustainable building group The Green Register said the recent increase in green buildings has been too slow to "adequately deal with the incredible challenges that climate change presents".

Lucy Pedler said the growth of environmentally-friendly properties in the UK needs to be "much faster" and existing building stock must be "radically altered to adapt to climate change".
