    I am very interested in the long term effects of green building practices as a catalyst for change within local communities. I have been drafting an article on the topic for a while and wondering if anyone here has first-hand experiences they can share?

    I can't say that I have heard anything positive. They built some low energy flats not too far from me. Timber clad on a blue steel frame. The locals disliked the look of them.
    Though I suspect that the newer places they built last year less than a mile away are even lower energy usage.

    The two biggest changes seem to be unnoticed and incremental, vehicles and power generation.

    Not noticed roofs covered in PV on all new builds. On some, but usually only a 2 kW system.

    Hi Peter,

    Where are you planning to publish your article?

    I notice you have commercial advertising in your profile. Have you cleared that with Keith?

    Our profile is allowed to say what we do/who we work for - this is useful for other site users to understand our background.

    Bedzed might be a good study of a community created on green principles - especially as it has been there for some time now.

    It would be interesting to know if the current owners of the homes are in still living or trying to live in accordance with the vision bestowed on the scheme. There should be plenty to find on the scheme with a simple internet search.

    Do you know of the project Peter?

    Failing that I'm sure other forum users will suggest a good range of other eco-communities across the UK/globe where data/feedback has been collected.
