Greenwich Millennium Village
The Greenwich Millennium Village is an urban Village located southeast of London. It is
on the banks of the Thames and is an EcoVillage this means that it is sustainable and
ecofriendly. The houses are bright and colourful. They are energy efficient, have balconies and
have a lovely surrounding view.
The Village is an example of new UK housing development, designed to be sustainable.
GMV attempts to be sustainable by doing the following:
Triple Glazed
Nonpolluting Paint
Modern Energy Saving Technology
Co Reducing Technology
People who live in GMV will feel part of the community because there are community
resources and facilities. There are also communal parks and transport.
The fact that there are trees and the river Thames is running alongside the GMV helps
the sustainability of the establishment, firstly because the Oxygen provided by the trees will give
fresh air for a long tine to come. And secondly the river is a good source of water.
Burnside is ecofriendly because:
Block 3 uses rainwater for toilets.
They also use low energy light bulbs
Double glazing
Paperless systems
There are also some reasons why they aren't:
Main entrance lights are always on
It is always too hot
Although there are loads of windows, teachers tend to work in artificial lights
This is what they could do:
They could turn of unnecessary lights in the day and after school (or put in
PIR's ­movement sensing lights)
They could turn off electrical equipment

and antisocial behaviour it could be less sustainable.…read more
