Environmentally friendly housing developments

Over the next fifteen years, four million homes will be built in Britain, with many likely to be on greenfield sites, in or close to rural areas. Presenter Charlotte Smith examines how the environment can be better protected by using cutting-edge environmentally friendly house-building technology. She shows how five homes in Hockington in Nottinghamshire are hidden from view by being constructed partially underground, with technology which allows them their own natural water supply and heat source.
