LandCorp gains Envirodevelopment Accreditation

There are some key stone projects coming to the market which show modern thinking when it comes to sustainability. LandCorp and Cambridge Council's joint initiative Parkside Walk was accredited with UDIA's sought after Envirodevelopment rating recently which recognises energy saving, water saving, community as well as waste.
