Briefings and resources

Dunsfold Aerodrome

The eco-settlement masterplan won a national award for town planning design in 2009  – beating the Kings Cross development in the final.  The first page of the Secretary of State’s decision on the appeal sets out the full range of buildings and on-site infrastructure and facilities which this development would have provided.

DP Briefing Aug09 is our short briefing produced in August 2009 on the reasons why local and national Friends of the Earth supported the Dunsfold Park eco-settlement.  Although an exemplar at the time low carbon development has progressed in the last few years and if the development came forward again it would need revision.

Tesco Pub Grab?

Would something similar to the Cambridge planning policy on pubs prevent more pubs morphing into a Tesco Express virtually overnight?  We think it’s worth a look.

Anaerobic Digestion Technical Briefing

When we started looking into the merits of the Anaerobic Digestor at Selborne in late 2010 we found there was no comprehensive briefing covering all the issues.  As a result of the proposals at Selborne and at Dunsfold we know a lot more about AD than we used to so we have written our own briefing – with help from an existing AD operator or two.  See  GW Friends of the Earth AD technical briefing Nov 2012
