|The emerging eco-vsion for the Dearne Valley has received a boost after securing £455,000 from the government to further develop the plans.Last year, consultants Urbed published the Dearne Valley Eco Vision that would see the Dearne Valley reimagined as an eco-valley and reduce the community’s CO2 emissions such that, within a decade, it will be the lowest carbon community of its type in the UK.The funding will enable councils in the Sheffield City Region to use the eco-towns concept to carry out a broader survey of potential, test alternative options for development and then use the eco-town concept and standards to apply across the Dearne Valley.The development will need to meet the green standards set out in the eco-towns planning policy statement. Proposals for sustainable developments need to include 5,000 homes and demonstrate innovative ideas for how jobs, schools and services are delivered in low carbon ways that will help in the UK respond to climate change.The funding will support development of the vision for Dearne Valley through detailed studies on delivering to the higher eco-town standards, as well as identifying employment and education opportunities. This will be further supported by the demonstrator project at the Ann Rhodes Community Centre at Brampton in Rotherham which will showcase new technologies in a retrofit show home.|
