local authorities in devon, UK, have approved plans for a eco-town to be built on land owned by artist damien hirst. the 750-home development is designed to stimulate economic growth in the community, expanding its current population by 20%.

 

the masterplan, which has been draw up by architects MRJ rundell + associates and urban design specialists david lock associates, has been hotly debated with some local residents concerned about the impact the expansion will have on the quiet seaside town. the scheme also incorporates a range of retail outlets, commercial space and a school. it is understood that the project will take between 10 and 15 years to complete.

  • ‘Sustainable Eco-village’? You left out ‘repurposed’.
