Plans submitted for massive zero carbon housing scheme

Plans submitted for massive zero carbon housing scheme
Property developer Barratt has applied for permission to start work on what could be one of the biggest zero carbon housing schemes in the country.

If given the green light, the company will build 195 new homes, all of which will be level six of the Code for Sustainable Homes – the highest possible.

Located near Bristol, plans for the Hanham Hall development are currently being scrutinized by South Gloucestershire Council.

London-based HTA Architects have drawn up the design for the housing scheme which will include 65 affordable homes.

Hanham Hall was formerly a nursing home but Barratt hopes it will eventually become one of the first zero carbon communities in England.

As well as the homes, a restaurant, nursery, community hall, cafe and offices are currently proposed to be located in the Hall.

"Hanham Hall will provide a mixture of houses, apartments and facilities for community activities which will make achieving a sustainable lifestyle easier for the neighbouring residents and the new community," the Hanham Hall website said.

"Zero carbon, local food, recycling opportunities and a green transport plan; Hanham Hall represents a truly sustainable community."
