Sustainable Living in Surrey



Sustainable Living in Surrey

The UK's largest eco-village - BedZED - can be found here

Location: 24 Helios Road, Wallington, SM6 7BZ

Description: The 'Beddington Zero Energy Development', or BedZED, is the UK's largest eco-village.

The multi-award winning development is one of the most coherent examples of sustainable living in the UK.

Located in Wallington, South London, BedZED comprises 100 homes, community facilities and workspace for 100 people. Residents have been living at BedZED since March 2002.

BioRegional are working to show that eco-construction and developing green lifestyles can be easy, accessible and affordable, and provide a good quality of life. For example, the heating requirements of BedZED homes are around 10% that of a typical home.

Not only that... but the BioRegional team is keen to work with local authorities, developers and the construction industry on a consultancy basis in order to see more eco-village developments built in the UK and abroad.
