New "Eco-estate" in London
Alex Steffen, 13 Apr 06

London mayor Ken Livingstone has announced plans for a new 1,000-home eco-development in London, to be built in partnership with Greenpeace, BedZED architect Bill Dunster and the firm Arup and modeled, at least conceptually, off Dongtan:

Mr Livingstone made the announcement in Shanghai, while inspecting plans for Dongtan. He said: "London's zero-emissions development will demonstrate that we can also realise this kind of vision in Europe and that it is affordable and achievable to make all major new developments low-carbon."

I posted a link to the Guardian writeup of this to the blog on London/bioregional. Before I noticed this little blog further down the page. I should know better that you Worldchanging guys are faster than that. :-)

How affordable are the new homes?

How does the development situate itself with other "sustainability needs", such as social and environmental justice regarding class issues?

Does the "green" city plan in China address these as part of how they are "green"?
