What does that mean for residents?

Most of the properties on St. Mary's Island incorporates features such as low energy light fittings, dual flush toilets and recycling facilities, that enable residents to lessen their impact on the environment, without having to make major changes to the way they live their life and the way they use their home. Features vary depending on the development and the individual property, and all are designed to give residents the opportunity to play their part in preserving the planet for future generations.

Not only do the environmental features help reduce the residents' impact on the environment, but also they can reduce running costs for owners, through greater water and energy efficiency.

Did you know that a third of the water used annually by the average family is flushed down the toilet? Properties built by Countryside Maritime Limited at St. Mary's Island have dual flush systems which save up to three litres on a single flush.
