The Grand-Claud eco-neighborhood in Lurais, France is set to be a national example of green revitalization.
The 470,000 Euro project, which started in 2009, took a long time to come to fruition. But, as of a few days ago, Lurais is in possession of the property for its new eco-neighborhood. The inauguration of the site permitted spectators to explore the different features that will be adopted. The plans for the eco-neighborhood take into account environmental, landscaping, and energy issues related to sustainable development and citizens’ quality of life.
The plans have six focal points:
- The preservation of historic Lurais, and its architectural cohesion;
- Water treatment;
- Environmental health;
- Public spaces;
- Energy efficiency;
- Waste management.
