“The Living Village Trust works with land owners, community groups, inspired individuals and enlightened developers to create great places to live rather than soulless housing estates” Carole Salmon – Director

They have… “created a model for our future. One of which Ebenezer Howard would be proud.”
Nick Boles Planning Minister.
“A company philosophy that embraces the concept of building sustainable communities where people genuinely want to live and interact with one another to enjoy a high quality of life.” The Judges, Your New Homes Awards
“We have joy in the environment and pleasure in the houses. Our quality of life has improved enormously since we moved here.” Resident of the Wintles

What makes a great place to live?

This is the question that we have been asking ourselves since 1993 when we set up Living Villages and The Living Village Trust. Over those 20 years we have designed, and built a number of new neighbourhoods to prove that our ideas work.

Our design and development service is for those who wish to build in a convivial and sustainable way.

We use a pattern of development that has proved itself to be the most successful in the past. Viability is ensured by creating places where people actually want to live.

This is true sustainability, and common sense. See Bob talk about this at the Dartington Future Homes Conference.
