Plans for Leicestershire eco village revealed

Plans to create an eco village in Leicestershire have been submitted by developers.

Architects say the development, at Kirby Bellars, near Melton, would be one of the first of its kind in the UK.

James Brindley, a consultant with HSSP Architects, said the 49 homes and visitor centre would be powered by an anaerobic digester which would convert waste into heat and electricity.
