Planning permission given for new eco home in south-east

Planning permission given for new eco home in south-east

Estate agents in the south-east of England may soon have a new property on their books.

Planning permission has been granted for the creation of a so-called Earth Dwelling to be constructed at Bow Brickhill after a team from Milton Keynes successfully secured planning permission on behalf of the landowner.

The home, which is being designed to be self-sufficient, is located in a designated area of attractive landscape, near the mature woodland of the Bedford Estate.

With the help of solar energy and biomass heating, the building will be one of the greenest in the country.

Jeremy Pyatt, who helped secure the permission, commented: "We were very pleased to be involved in such a fascinating project and delighted that the inspector was so supportive of the scheme."

At present, the government is trialling a variety of schemes across the country in a bid to encourage homeowners to turn their residences into more environmentally-friendly places.
