Community Development

Towards Sustainable Communities

Download the Towards Sustainable Communities: Eco-towns Community Worksheet 

The formation of sustainable communities within an eco-town is as vital to its success as its physical infrastructure. Different people will identify with different sections of the eco-town community. Building social capital by supporting interaction and involving local people in planning, as well as in running services, are crucial themes that promoters of eco-towns must plan for. Community development measures are neither short term nor cheap.

Key points and processes:

  • Map existing community and faith organisations in the locality
  • Build a central resource centre for the community
  • Community development workers
  • Community infrastructure delivered early and on time
  • Formation of a community trust
  • Open space and allotments
