York finally goes Green

This is literally just down the road from my house – Green homes to be built in York. I live in an old light industrial area of the city that has long been in decline. Currently there are 500 new homes being built or having just been completed on these brownfield sites – not one of them comes under the ‘affordable’ classification, and these are the first to be ‘green’. Given that the city has just agreed to give up another huge tranche of greenbelt over the next 15 years let’s hope this isn’t the last we’ll see of more innovative housing projects in the city.
