Astral Green – our vision for cleaner, green living

The effects of climate change are growing ever closer to home. Extreme weather events, droughts and catastrophic flooding are just part of the reality we’re witnessing in the UK. Add to this the soaring cost of energy bills, and it’s no wonder the average householder feels helpless about the future.

We can all make a difference – starting with having a say in the kind of homes and communities we want for our country.

That’s where Astral Green comes in, a net zero carbon development that has been designed to produce 100% of its own renewable energy, on site. A cleaner, greener way of living that will benefit the wider community for generations to come.

Cleaner, greener living starts here

Our vision is for a new operational net zero carbon community at Astral Green, to the south-east of Leighton Buzzard. Designed to be one of the first of its kind, it has been carefully planned to provide a new green energy park, alongside high-quality new homes.

The renewable energy park will include a wind turbine and solar panels, all of which will generate enough renewable energy for the entire development, as well as existing homes in the surrounding area. It will also commit to delivering low-carbon renewable heating and hot water from ground source heat pumps via an on-site heating network.


The UK has committed to be carbon neutral by 2050. Central Bedfordshire Council has also pledged to become carbon neutral by 2030, aiming to lead by example and encouraging residents and businesses to do likewise.

To meet these targets, we need to take positive action right now and make some real changes to how we live.

That’s why we’re thrilled to share our exciting vision for Astral Green; a cleaner, greener community designed to produce 100% of its own renewable energy on site.

As experts in green energy infrastructure, we’ve used our considerable experience to shape these unique proposals. Together, we can ensure we meet our commitment to a net zero carbon future, right here and now.
