Tackling the housing crisis
Low energy homes for the future
Norwich City Council
Norwich City Council have committed to providing low energy homes that are fit for the future. The council will be the largest provider of ‘Passivhaus’ standard houses, which means they will contain mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MHVR) systems, triple-glazed windows and traditional combi boilers providing hot water and minimal space heating, delivering both lower energy bills for residents and reduced carbon emissions. The latest phase of building is the largest mixed-tenure Passivhaus development in the UK, with everything from one bed apartments to five-bedroom family homes available. The council will manage the social housing on the development.
