Days left to have your say on future of city
Low-carbon Bath online survey still available
3 February 2011
An online questionnaire giving people an opportunity to have their say on the potential low-carbon future on Bath is still available for the next week or so.
The survey, which is part of the CSE project Low-carbon Bath, aims to measure the public acceptability of low-carbon measures in the historic city.
Taking around 10 minutes to complete, it offers everyone the chance to have a say on what kinds of low-carbon improvements to the building fabric should be permissible on Bath’s most protected buildings. It includes such as double glazing, ventilation, draft-proofing, insulation, heating systems and solar panels.
The questionnaire can be still be accessed online at www.tinyurl.com/bathsurvey until 13 February 2011.
The results will be published later in the Spring alongside detailed practical guidance about how traditional homes in Bath can be improved to reduce their carbon emissions.
The project team have already staged a series of workshops in Bath with a range of audiences including green and heritage groups, architects and developers, sixth-form students and members of the public, exploring the relationship between architectural conservation and climate change mitigation. The overwhelming consensus is that the City’s heritage must be protected whilst at the same time efforts should be made to make the city's homes and public buildings more energy efficient.
