Lambeth has recently commissioned Bioregional Development Group (creators of Beddington Zero Energy Development or BedZED) to build their One Planet Living framework into the Master Plan This is very positive news. One Planet Living has 10 principles:

  1. Zero carbon
  2. Zero waste
  3. Sustainable transport
  4. Sustainable materials
  5. Local and sustainable food
  6. Sustainable water
  7. Natural habitats and wildlife
  8. Culture and heritage
  9. Equity and fair trade
  10. Health and happiness

TTB can inform the specifics and make sure that we insist on designing for localisation and genuine zero carbon. This is an opportunity for working groups to draw up the principles of future design out of their visioning so far and any specific ideas that will contribute to a better low energy future Brixton, a genuine sustainable community. See and add to ideas below.
