Homes alone

Among the guests was Bill Dunster, of BedZED fame, who told me how delighted he was to get out of the suburbs. The Surbiton-based eco-architect is trying to get something built in Cornwall, where he won a competition for a batch of rural carbon-neutral homes last year. But interest in his competition proposals has dried up and now he is chatting to the Cornwall Sustainable Building Trust, who agreed the Duchy needed some homes of the nature that Bill excels at. But the land owner is English Partnerships, the government regeneration quango that is wedded to working with private developers, who Bill claimed are not interested in progressing his ideas.
