Jenny Jones, of the Green Party and GLA, visited the Mayville Community Centre project this morning which is now weeks off completion. She was hugely supportive of what has been achieved by the Mildmay Community Partnership, bere:architects and the construction team, stating when she received the description of the project she could not believe all that was being done by a small community trust on one building. She was interested to hear how the fund raising efforts and vision of the MCP, with the expertise and technical support of local architectural practice, bere:architects, had translated into such a ground breaking and exemplar community project.
Jenny is a green party member, Chair of the GLA Planning and Housing committee and an absolute supporter of the passivhaus movement. She was keen to have further involvement in the project and thought it was a brilliant tool to display what is possible with current needs to reduce the energy consumption of existing London building stock. Jenny was really keen to bring further visitors to see the project including key GLA members to help rally support for passivhaus building in London.
