Enviroment - GVI Saving the UK Enviroment - Global Giving

The New Energy Village Awareness Scheme

The SEV Concept was to make the former colliery site special. With so many UK collieries closing at that time, what we didn’t want was yet another ‘industrial park’ of tin hut style units. We looked at the key issues:


  • Ownership controlling development to ensure delivery of local aspirations
  • Mixed use industry; housing; recreation and education
  • An environmental overlay to all developments, including energy efficiency, promotion of renewable energy and biodiversity
  • Application of profit to further regeneration / site development

Save the Green Belt

In 2016 UK Land Agents are now offering green field land for sale, close to existing housing to private investors. These plot sales allows individuals to share in the development gains that previously were only on offer to the large builders and developers of land for sale.

Some UK Land Agents though are not completely honest with the public and recommending that they purchase land deep in the countryside in the hope of eventual development. Some Land Agents even recommend that the public do not need to use solicitors to purchase the land!

As such I have designed this site to act as a green belt "press cuttings" service. GVI now contains over 100 recent news articles. I leave it to you to read these articles and then make up your own mind on this issue.

To protect people who decide that they want to "invest" in the Green Belt I have listed a series of recommended "quality" Land Agents . All of these Agents give good advice and as such insist that you use your own independent solicitor when purchasing land (unlike Land Agents from the more dubious end of the market).
