Cardiff may see 800 environmentally friendly homes built in Pontprennau, which will create Wales' first eco village. Within the proposed village will be a school, shops, community centre and woodland area. All of this will be situated on farmland to the east of the suburb of Pontprennau, next to the River Rhymney.It is thought the houses will use 30% less energy than your typical home. Green technologies will be incorporated in the design stage of the homes which include in between two and five bedroom houses. Some of the green technologies will include rainwater harvesting, wind turbines, ground source heat pumps and hot water solar panels. The proposed estate covers 60 acres of a 100 acre site but maybe in doubt because of differences between Cardiff Council and the Assembly Government Inspectors over the Local Development Plan. The LDP judges how Cardiff will develop until 2021.The main difference between the two is that Cardiff Council wants to develop on previously developed brownfield sites therefore keeping and retaining Cardiff's green areas. However the Assembly Government Planning Inspectors disagree instead believing that due to Cardiff's need for housing for the law and middle income families who cannot find affordable homes, previous untouched greenfield sites are the only viable option.The developers PMG, part of the St Ederyns Land Consortium, see the eco village as something which will be in Cardiff for generations. If the development does go ahead then it will stretch from junction 30 of the M4 to the edge of the village of Llanederyn. Due to the severe shortage of homes in Cardiff, the development does serve its purpose and links in with the idea of more eco-friendly housing for the city. It also has the benefit of having excellent transport links.

Is it time for assisted living? Assisted living is a very useful transition for a senior who is no longer fully able to care for themselves, yet not needing a nursing home. Assisted living is a middle ground in which a senior still has their own housing, but has access to assistance when needed. Assisted living communities may be run by companies that provide home health care, so there can be a natural transition through life as the needs of a senior increase.In the past, assisted living was not one of the senior living options. A senior with failing health or mental abilities toughed it out at home with family help until it was time to go to a nursing home for nearly full time care. Nowadays, assisted living facilities exist to provide yet another option for a senior as they age and their living skills decrease. For the senior who is not blessed with vigorgous health right to the end of life, assisted living can be a great step along the way.The senior will have their own apartment or condo in one of the communities that is dedicated to taking care of other seniors at a similar stage in life. The assisted living services that are available to any one senior can be tailored to their particular needs. One senior may have all their household chores under control, but not be able to drive. Another senior may not be able to move well enough to bend over and clean the house, so need housekeeping on a regular basis. Still another senior may have special needs for sleeping or bathing, and some of the apartments in assisted living communities may be outfitted with beds and baths that can handle these needs.One benefit of assisted living communities is that a senior can make friends who are living nearby and will continue living nearby even as their needs change. The facilities that are available in assisted living communities make it possible for a senior to move from one apartment to another as their needs change. Even if you move from one apartment to another, you are still in the same community, and all of your friends are still just around the corner to visit with whenever you like.Assisted living communities can now be found in every large city in the country and many smaller cities as well. They have been found to be a top notch way to help a senior transition through the aging process. For more info, you can search online for "assisted living", or call a state agency for services that they know about in your area. Assisted living facilities may be just the answer that you are looking for to help an aging parent with the best care possible, while still allowing them the independence that they want. While you may want to care for your parents as much as possible, family life keeps us very busy nowadays, and assisted living housing may be the best way to care for your parents at this time.

The property industry has been very gloomy in the last couple of years since the economic downturn, however this is not the case now for some savvy developers who are building green villages and towns which do not cost the earth to live in.The concept is called New Urbanism and there are around ten such communities across the country so far following the same principles. The philosophy began in the 1980's in America and encourages small settlements of a few thousand people to live in a community with a "centre" to it and a number of schools and facilities. Public transport is encouraged as is walking when you can and cars are discouraged, the idea is that schools and work places are within five miles of your home.This may seem a very straight forward idea and is how all development should be built but this is not the case for many people. Often cars are the only way that some people can get their children to school on time or get to work and so they rely heavily on them.In Cornwall there is a new sustainable community being constructed by John Hodkin called Baal and West Carclaze Eco-community. There will be 2,000 new homes there with 40% of them being affordable. All of the homes though will have the new energy efficiency features alongside a new school and nursery all connected by footpaths and cycleways and good transport links with new bus services.An employment park will be constructed offering 350 new jobs and there will be 500 acres of open space to enjoy with new lakes created and landscaping. The site used to be six horrible china-clay quarries close to St Austell but will now be transformed into a modern Eco-village.The site application has been submitted after extensive talks with the site owner but more importantly with the locals. Hodkin has held 120 hours of public consultations and has arranged eighteen exhibitions and meetings so far and has consulted 1,500 people along with 300 businesses for the venture. He admits that it has taken several years of hard work and lots of ineraction with the community with the focus being on economic, social and environmental regeneration. He has done all of this so that he does not receive the opposition to the project that other such developments have gotten. Local opposition ended one such scheme in Long Marston in Warwickshire and the tennis player Tim Henman led protests against an eco town in Weston-on-the-Green in Oxfordshire which led to the scheme being abandoned. The schemes that are going ahead have local backing rather than opposition.Bicester has an Eco Development Masterplan which has outlined its first 74million phase which will last ten years in its entirety. Initial developments will see 393 homes being built and a large energy centre which will generate much of the new village's power. There will also be a nursery, community centre, primary school, three shops, some small business units and an "eco-pub". The councils and companies involved with this development have linked up with the Co-op to provide a store which will source supplies locally. They also plan to run eco-related courses at the local college aimed at the 16 years and over. The architect behind the scheme, Terry Farrell, describes the scheme as a model for sustainable development in the UK.Cambridge and Devon both have schemes in the pipeline but the big volume builders will not be participating in any of these schemes. The infrastructure costs of these eco-villages are huge and the roads and utilities have to be done up front before any houses are built so they rely on the landowners selling at below market value but which may pay big dividends if the schemes are successful.
