Delivering a carbon neutral community, with amenities managed by a Community Development Trust

By Marcus Adams, Urban Initiatives

Graylingwell Park will be the UK’s largest carbon neutral development, located on the site of a former hospital near Chichester. Set within 85 acres of parkland grounds, it will provide around 750 new and converted homes along with a range of new community amenities, managed by a Community Development Trust.

Constituent elements of a community infrastructure package could include: Heat and cooling, electricity supply, energy generation, water supply, water disposal, waste disposal, waste re-use and communications infrastructure
