Victoria was joined by Energy Minister Andrea Leadsom MP to officially open the Elmsbrook energy centre on 23 May 2016.

Elmsbrook, situated in north west Bicester, is the first eco-town in the country, and is providing new homes to true zero-carbon standards.

As well as opening the energy centre, Victoria and the Minister were able to visit one of the show homes, learn more about the eco-friendly standards properties had been built to, and see one of the development’s electric cars.

Speaking after the event, Victoria said “It was just lovely to be able to bring the Minister to see this fantastic development for herself. I am very proud that Bicester is home to the first eco-town in the country. Now that residents are moving in, the community spirit is even more apparent.”
