Living and Breathing eco-houses

Find out first hand what it is like to live in a straw bale eco-housing development on this guided tour and talk about the unique and innovative LILAC housing development.

Combining straw bale prefabricated houses and renewable technologies with a novel co-housing living arrangement that has common facilities and car free lanes and shared green space the development has many features which are still to be adopted more widely - should that be the case?

LILAC is over 3 years old now and still attracting national attention. Come and see what the fuss is about!

Meeting at 5pm and starting at 5.30pm with a tour of the site and houses before returning back to the common house for presentation by resident with energy use data and real life experiences of living in and with a low energy home.

There will be time for questions and discussion with close around 7pm plus we will be taking the opportunity for a drink at the famous Kirkstall Brewery "Bridge Inn" afterwards.
