St Austell Eco Town

Lawrence Baulch, Hugo Davies, Ricky Burke, Mudhusha Wijesiri

A critical appraisal of the St. Austell area ECO-Town initiatives is interpreted as a model for ‘greening’ Plymouth. The scheme has been appraised from its sustainable construction philosophy to its impact on existing communities, to determine the relevance of the agendas to improving Plymouth. Conclusions are drawn as to how initiatives are succeeding or failing in their intentions and how the methods might be adapted to better acheive the intended goals. Other models for retro-fi tting and adapting existing spaces are drawn upon as more suitable models for the creation of a ‘greener’ Plymouth.
