Building low carbon housing
Guest speakers from HAB Housing, set up by Kevin McCloud, TV presenter, designer and author to challenge the way volume housing is built in the UK.
This meeting is very popular and unless you book a seat, you are unlikely to get in. Email email@example.com or ring 01962 827083 to book. Admission free, but there will be a collection.
David Eynon, Assistant Development Manager, and Mike Roberts Managing Director will speak on how the company designs its homes and communities to be low energy in both construction and use, using their new development at Lovedon Fields in Kings Worthy as the example.
For people who care about the quality of housing developments in Winchester District, people planning to buy a new home and people planning to build, as well as people keen to cut the carbon footprint of Winchester District.
7.15 for free coffee or tea and networking.
HAB stands for Happiness Architecture Beauty.

These joint meetings arranged by WinACC and Friends of the Earth are an ideal way for newcomers to find out more about climate change and environmental issues, and what's going on in Winchester. We aim to be friendly, welcoming and lively, and to thrash out our view on important policy issues at each meeting.
