Persimmon woos council with green initiatives

Persimmon Homes has secured approval for almost 100 new homes in Carlisle, Cumbria, winning over council planners with green-transport carrots.

The developer will also subsidise public-transport for resident and build a link to a nearby bike path to the city centre.
