LILAC stands for Low Impact Living Affordable Community LILAC is a pioneering project which aims to build a member-led housing neighbourhood which will… - have a low impact on the environment, - be built to the highest ecological standards, - be affordable, maximise social interaction between residents, - make a positive contribution to its surrounding community.
Low Impact Living According to the Energy Savings Trust, 26% of C02 emissions in the UK come from our homes. The government has set a target of all new buildings to be carbon neutral by 2019. We respond to this challenge. Affordable We have chosen an alternative model (Mutual Home Ownership Society) which keeps housing permanently affordable. Community Our design will maximise community interaction. It is based on a Danish co-housing model which balances people’s needs for their own private space with shared facilities.
