The Green House Project
As part of our commitment to tackling climate change and encouraging residents to be energy efficient, the council has purchased two properties, one in St Ives and the other in St Neots, and turned them into ‘green’ show homes.
The aim of the project is to show how such properties can be refurbished affordably and easily, not only to reduce carbon emissions but to provide healthier homes that are cheaper, comfortable and more efficient to run.
Both properties provide an essential demonstration and educational resource for home owners, housing providers, tradesmen, local suppliers and educational establishments.
The project promotes the importance of sustainable refurbishment, and provides easy access to advice, products, technologies and information to those planning on making improvements to their own properties.
The St Ives property is available for viewing and the St Neots property is currently occupied and the tenants are living an ‘eco-friendly lifestyle’ and blogging about their experience
