IoM house design goes green

A guidance document to help people design houses on Island has been updated to be more green.

Now, it'll consider issues such as climate change, biodiversity and active travel - as Manx government works to reach net zero by 2050.

The document applies to all residential developments including houses, flats and extensions.

It aims to provide an opportunity for people to explain how they have considered issues such as carbon capture, ecosystems, biodiversity net gain, sustainable drainage and active travel.

Last month, Tynwald backed the Green Living Grant Scheme which will help people to reduce household carbon emissions and bills by making their properties more energy efficient.
