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.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
