Our new Abbey Central development is an exclusive collection of seventy-one eco-friendly homes, offering a harmonious blend of modern design and sustainability in the bustling town of West Bridgford, Nottinghamshire.
We are delighted that the document on sustainable and low-carbon design by Rushcliffe Borough Council features Abbey Central as a case study, highlighting our innovative energy-efficient new homes in Nottinghamshire.
In collaboration with Stagfield Group, our new Abbey Central development has been crafted to be as sustainable as possible. The development seamlessly incorporates a range of cutting-edge technologies and systems, such as air source heat pumps, solar photovoltaics, stack ventilation, electric vehicle charging, and a smart home system.
These new homes are set to achieve over 50% CO2 reduction compared to standard building regulations, which will surpass our original target of 19%.
In addition to contributing to the council’s and local area’s carbon neutrality goals, our new homes in West Bridgford offer distinct advantages to buyers. Certain homes within Abbey Central are set to attain remarkable savings of up to 80% in both CO2 emissions and energy consumption compared to current building standards.
Rushcliffe Council’s planning document
Aligned with the Council’s goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2030, as announced in March 2020, several Nottinghamshire councils are taking swift action against climate change, setting ambitious carbon neutrality targets ranging from 2027 to 2030.
The SPD is a comprehensive planning guide, offering insights into strategies for low-carbon energy and sustainable design. Its aim is to support relevant councils in reaching their carbon reduction goals. Key aspects of the SPD include:
- Practical advice on sustainable design and construction methodologies
- Guidelines to inform planning applications and development management processes
- References to best practices and guidelines
- A developer’s checklist for smooth planning application submissions
