“Fifteen minutes south” (slight return)

Lake Shore - Urban Splash

The ads say:

“A sustainable landmark bringing geo-thermal heating & carbon saving to Bristol”

And that it’s:

“fifteen minutes south of Bristol City Centre”

So what “carbon saving” form of travel gets you from Bristol City Centre to Hartcliffe in fifteen minutes? Walking or by bus you’d get to Asda Bedminster; by bike you’d get to the bottom of Hartcliffe Way (unless you’re super-fit).

That just leaves. . . Surely not. . . It cannot be. . . That they mean fifteen minutes by that well known carbon saving device the motor car?

Are our new best developer friends, Urban Splash, encouraging people to live in Hartcliffe and drive to work in the centre in order to save carbon? Is that the sweet, sweet smell of greenwash filling my nostrils?
