Our project adopts an environmentally friendly way to tackle lack of affordable ecological housing and communities.
The Eco Village Development Company CIC* exists to enable people to buy or build their own house, to live in a more sustainable way and develop communities. Our affordable wooden eco-houses have been designed in a kit format requiring only quick, simple assembly and no skills. They can be totally self-sufficient with solar powered under floor heating, rain water recycling, grey water recycling, compost toilets, growing areas for food and solar energy generation.
To create affordable living villages within natural settings based on the principles of Permaculture, working within nature in a harmonious, non-harmful way. Providing initial training will allow residents to grow their own food and share skills, goods and services, thus enhancing the potential for all.
To create beautiful, comfortable houses that are ecological and affordable, and that can run ‘off-grid’ for very low running costs; with community areas and the opportunity to co-manage.
To offer opportunities for community activities in the villages by creating shared spaces and facilities onsite for work, gardens and other amenities that will help enhance connection, communication and mutual support.
