The Zoom link will be posted here closer to the time.
Thursday 27thMay @ 3:00pm
Most residents bought into Derwenthorpe on the understanding that it is an environmentally advanced estate.
Now that phases 1 to 4 have been completed, it is time to take stock of what has been achieved and identify what we can do for the future.
This Zoom meeting is the first of a series on environmental matters. We start with two major subjects: our houses and the provision of heat (Future meetings will cover other key subjects including transport, community, food, etcetera).
In all cases the question is:
‘How could Derwenthorpe be upgraded to deliver low-carbon living by 2050?
The Architect’s View
Richard Partington, from Partington Studios, the visionary architect for Derwenthorpe, will explain the vision, the reality and the potential for meeting the requirements of a future world.
The Engineer’s View
Mich Swainson, Principal Engineer of the Building Research Establishment, will explain the government’s policies on heating and conservation and identify practical improvements for the future.
