It is assumed that the village will be constructed on a seven-hectare area in the municipality. The goal is for the community to be as sustainable as possible and for it to be certified as such internationally, visir.is reports.
It is estimated that up to 140 jobs can be created during the construction period. Once full operation has begun, more than 100 people can be employed by the health village in addition to 400 related jobs.
The project will partially be sponsored by the Ministry for the Environment.
