The Broads Authority yesterday unveiled its Sustainability Guide to inspire property developers, designers and home owners to be creative in design.

The booklet, illustrated with photographs and diagrams, is accompanied by a CD with website links. The externally-funded research into sustainability in design was carried out by LSI Architects, who will be organising a seminar on sustainable design in early September.

The guide was launched in Whitlingham Visitor Centre, Whitlingham Country Park, chosen as a good example of a sustainable design approach involving the re-use of an existing building. The booklet has sections on designing buildings to adapt to climate change, energy efficiency and choosing materials which have a low impact on resource depletion.

The booklet is available from the Broads Authority's office at 18 Colegate, Norwich, NR3 1BQ, and will be downloadable from the Broads Authority's website www.broads-authority.gov.uk
