The Eco-town Challenge Panel is an independent group of people with expertise in various aspects of sustainability and urban development. The Panel exists to encourage bidders to improve and develop their proposals to the point where they can be regarded as truly exemplary projects, which fit well within their surroundings, demonstrate innovative approaches to sustainable development and represent a step change beyond what would currently be regarded as best practice.

The attached comments describe what the Panel has said to each set of proposers, following a second series of meetings which took place between 7-15 July. Some of the more general comments regarding progress are recorded at the beginning of the notes. The Panel met for a second time to hear how the proposals were progressing, recognising that given the short period since the initial meetings it would be hearing about work in progress rather than final plans. Many of the proposals have shown significant and encouraging progress during those few weeks. In all cases the Panel made suggestions about where it believes further progress is most needed, and has encouraged the direction in which much of the work is going.
