The proposed development is for 10 units to the Passivhaus Low Energy Standard.Architeco Passivhaus Development
With the existing buildings at this site being unsuitable for renovation, the proposal is to redevelop this site into a Sustainable Living development.

The dwellings are to be starter homes and will be available for private rent. The houses will not be available to purchase. The rent will be set at an affordable level with the integral low energy design strategy keeping utilities bills to a minimum. To achieve this, the dwellings are to be designed and constructed to the Passivhaus Standard, using SIP construction.

Sustainability doesn’t end with affordable housing with low energy use.

To create a sustainable community,  the proposal is for 10 units, comprising of a mix of 2 & 3 bedroom semi-detached residences.

Space standards will meet the requirements of Housing for Varying Needs.

Private gardens are provided, along with communal spaces and play areas to allow the residents to share space. As part of the Sustainable Living approach, an area of ground is to be set aside for an organic orchard and allotments to allow the development to take a further step towards self-sustaining, sustainable living, and to assist with the development of the community aspect to the proposal.

A renewable energy strategy is being considered and integrated into the design.

We hope that this proposal will prove to be an exemplar of good quality, affordable, low energy, sustainable living, and be sought after as a place to live.
