A building company called Biotecture has finalised plans for a planning application to Brighton and Hove City Council to build on a prime eco-development site overlooking Brighton Marina.

The homes are based on the core biotecture principles and are designed to be free of utility bills and ultra low on carbon emissions by heating and cooling themselves, providing their own wind and solar power, harvesting rainwater for domestic use, and containing and treating their own waste.

15,000 tyres would be recycled to construct the homes, at a time when the UK is planning to burn some 40 million tyres each year at great environmental cost.
