drbubb Posted June 2, 2006 Report Share Posted June 2, 2006 Want to live in a "GreenTopia" ? ?? This will be the central thread of a new concept that I am developing. For want of a better name, I call it "GreenTopia" the GEI village: 1/ (as TLM puts it): "My ultimate aim has always been to have a few acres of land around me, whilst at the same time being part of a larger community, e.g. popping down to the local for a friendly chat in the evening, etc. Views across rolling countryside or over brooding seascapes would be a bonus" 2/ My own initial thought was: I am at the early stage of hatching an idea, which at this stage I will call "The Green Energy Village". It is too early to say much, but think about a village of prefabricated homes which use, perhaps on an experimental basis, Renewable forms of energy in the village: a wind turbine or two, solar cells, a community centre with live experiments into new forms of renewable power. Electric cars and bicyles operating between the community and a nearby train station. With a river passing by, with floating homes on the water, and narrow boat moorings. The village would breathe in fresh air, and create little carbon, and recycle as much of its waste as feasible. - - Other threads worth checking: The Pre-Fab thread The Grand Designs thread XXX YYY ZZZ = = LINKS: The EcoVillage Network....... : http://www.evnuk.org.uk/ EREC Sustainable community: http://www.erec-renewables.org/projects/pr...Communities.htm Romero's LVL Prefab Home.. : http://www.rocioromero.com/homelvl.htm Barker on Land Use Planning: http://www.landaspirations.com/Reviewofpla...seonUKland1.htm Dexigner Forums (on DX) ....: http://www.dexigner.com/forum/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
