Hi Catherine


Like the sound of this!  Well done...


I would say that your key task now is to find that case study; have a
trawl through Diggers and Dreamers, investigate Brithdir Mawr on the
internet (probably not a good case study
as they have been studied a lot), look at the links at, especially


Do you want to add anything Larch? :-)


cheers, keith

For my dissertation I am proposing to look into LID's witht the
intention of answering questions such as:


*  What measures are being taken to reduce ecological footprints within
the Low Impact Development settlement and does this provide a practical
way of living? 

*  To what extent has the LID scheme and its residents been accepted by
the surrounding Welsh community? 

*  Have the sustainable ways of living adopted by the residents of the
LID settlement diffused into the surrounding communities?

I want to research a LID in Wales which has been estalished and 'up and
running' for some time.

Do you have any particular reccommendations?
