Work is well underway at our Morris House site in Croydon. The demolition of the former warehouse has been completed and the site is now being prepared for the reduced level dig.
The development involves the erection of an eleven storey building to provide 60 homes and flexible commercial floorspace at ground floor level. All of the residential units are being delivered in conjunction with PA Housing. Further details of the development can be found here.
A growing number of property buyers are now prioritising energy efficient features when looking for a new home, as the energy crisis concerns grow. According to the research undertaken by the Home Builders Federation (HBF), house hunters have become increasingly interested in sustainability, leading them to look for energy-efficient homes that offer green features.
The study has revealed the extent to which energy efficiency is now guiding the way we are now making home-moving decisions. Around three in four respondents – 73% – to the HBF’s recent survey stated that they are worried about the energy performance of their current home, with almost a quarter – 24% – saying energy efficiency will be ‘crucial’ to their next home move. Being ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘having a good EPC rating’ are now the second and third most desirable features in a new home, behind outdoor space, the study found.
We are committed to making our homes and developments more sustainable and lessen our impact on the environment. We know that people want to live more sustainably and to reduce their carbon footprint. With rising energy bills, we want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to do just that.
There is of course more we can do and we will continually strive to build the best sustainable homes possible.
A public consultation event is scheduled to be held next Tuesday (31st August) at The Masons Pre-School, in order to present our initial development proposals for the land off of Frisby Avenue, Shirley
The proposal is for the creation of an access road to serve a small, but carefully designed residential development of 9 x three and four bedroom houses.
We are determined to develop a scheme which everyone can be proud of and your input is fundamental to achieving this goal.
Copies of the display boards showing our initial proposals for the site can be viewed by clicking here.
This event is open to anyone and we look forward to seeing you there if you are able to attend. If you are unable to make the consultation, please do not hesitate to contact us, as we would welcome the opportunity to discuss the project directly with you.
