The development also achieves, over and above the Code Level 4 compliance, a 30% energy reduction against current standard building regulations requirements across the whole development, this means householders could potentially pay less for their fuel bills.
As part of the Code and energy reduction strategy every home is be fitted with high quality in-built photovoltaic tiles.
Helen McGill, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (South Midlands), says: “Householders are increasingly aware of their carbon footprint, how much energy they are using and the effect on both the environment and their bills. What they may not realise is that our new homes at Castle Fields boast a host of features designed to save energy and reduce waste. The energy efficiency measures mean they outperform other properties, including some new builds, by up to 30%. In simple terms, our homes are kind to the environment and to your pocket.”
Along with ‘green’ measures inside the homes, Redrow is also including a number of features outside the properties.
Residents will be encouraged to use pedal power to get around as each home will include cycle storage facilities. They will be able to get on their bikes close to home as there will be a comprehensive cycle path network in and around the development.
Those with a love of the outdoors will be at home at Castle Fields as there will be a series of landscaped public open spaces with individual character and a large attenuation pond to provide irrigation as well as being an attractive feature.
Redrow will also be protecting and enhancing the Southfield Farm Marsh, which is a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’ due to its rich and diverse rare vegetation and important wildlife habitat
As part of a commitment to invest £6 million in the local area, Redrow will also build a new community centre.
The company has also agreed to extend an existing allotment site to the north of the development with the gift of a 7,592 square metre parcel of land. This will provide an additional 27 allotments, which will be managed by the local council.
