LDA Design is undertaking a comprehensive study into how Whitehill Bordon can be made carbon neutral by 2036.

A comprehensive study into how Whitehill Bordon in Hampshire can be made carbon neutral is being undertaken by LDA Design. Whitehill Bordon Eco-town has a target for the whole town to be carbon neutral by 2036, encompassing the existing community and new development planned over the next 125 years. LDA Design is leading a practical study to identify renewable and low-carbon energy options that will enable this goal to be achieved.

The study is considering current and future energy demands from buildings, transport, water and waste management. It is also reviewing infrastructure capacity and appraising energy-supply options for the town.

Helen Pearce, project manage with LDA Design, said, ‘This is a major step towards delivering low-carbon energy generation and community-owned energy schemes in the town. Creating a carbon-neutral town is no small challenge, and LDA Design is delighted to be able to play it part in this exciting project as it unfolds.’
