Green your building
As you can see from all the buildings on this website, there are many different ways you can green your building – from using sustainable materials and sources of energy to reducing energy and water consumption. This page links to some of the most useful sources of information and advice to help you.
For advice on planning your own sustainable building, check out the Peak District National Park Authority’s website and their “Supplementary Planning Document for Climate Change and Sustainable Buildings” which was adopted by the Authority in March 2013. It promotes the positive role that sustainable buildings, and low carbon and renewable energy can play in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and provides guidance on adapting to and mitigating the impacts of climate change in ways that are appropriate to the statutorily protected landscapes of the Peak District National Park.
