VISIT THE UK'S 1ST ECO TOWN
Bicester, Oxfordshire, UK
We visited Elmsbrook, the UK's first eco town, with highly sustainable, Passivhaus standard buildings and homes. This is a pioneering development with 400 highly energy efficient homes, creating one of the UK's first truly zero carbon communities. With solar panels lining each rooftop, green areas covering 40% of the land to encourage biodiversity, advanced waste collection technologies, and various eco-transport options, Elmsbrook has really set the standard for the future of developing.
