Case study: The largest eco village in Cornwall
West Carclaze Garden Village is a 21st Century lakeside community built around the unique and historical China clay landscape of St Austell, Cornwall. With health and sustainability as its core values, when complete the project will include: 1500 ‘EPC A rated’ homes, a village centre, community allotments and a 350-acre managed country park that includes 5 lakes and numerous trails.
The development aligns with the government’s ‘Build Back Better’ mission and will achieve carbon net zero by 2050 and be carbon positive from then on. The two on site solar farms will also produce enough electricity to offset the amount produced by 1,136 of the highly energy efficient homes being delivered.
