February 22, 2011 (FPRC) --

All of the new properties are affordable housing and will be available for social renting for local, lower income families who cannot otherwise afford to buy a new home.

The first phase will start this month and is due for completion in March 2012, with a total of 22 eco-friendly homes built to Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. This will mean that the new homes will be 44% more energy efficient compared to new houses built conventionally.

In the second phase, 44 properties will be built to Level 3 of the Code and will be finished by March 2013. These new homes will be 25% more energy efficient compared to conventional new-build methods.

By 2016, the Government has made a commitment that all new UK developments will reach zero carbon status. In order to fulfil their commitment, they have issued policies that all new houses will need to be built to specifications that incorporate sustainability in their construction.

There are 6 levels of ratings for the Code for sustainable homes is measured and is measured against nine sustainability criteria. The nine criteria are CO1 and energy, materials, waste pollution, health and wellbeing, management, ecology, water and surface water run-off.
