Sustainable development is at the heart of deciding the layout of Plasdŵr, with these identified environment objectives informing how we have planned:
During construction, careful use of resources with locally-sourced materials re-used and recycled wherever possible. Buildings and landscapes will all be designed according to a series of sustainable design principles, including using a fabric first approach for housing to minimise energy consumption, reducing waste and using renewable or low carbon energy technology wherever possible.
The scheme has been developed with universal access front-of-mind, and we aim to ensure that people of all mobilities can easily move around the site and its homes and public buildings.
For more detailed information on Plasdŵr’s sustainability, from planning and design principles, through environmental considerations, inclusivity, employment and more, please see Section 4 of our Design and Access Statement in the Planning section.
