Building work under way on 214 new low carbon homes in Cardiff
A scheme comprising 214 new properties that will incorporate renewable technologies and smart energy management systems to significantly reduce the energy demand on the grid has started being developed in Cardiff, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The scheme will take energy performance standards to a new level as well as helping to tackle fuel poverty by significantly reducing energy bills. The site will include 65 new council homes, 44 of which will be Community Living flats for older people and 21 two and three-bedroom houses.
A further 149 properties will be for sale on the open market and both council and sale housing will be built to the same energy performance standards.
The Community Living scheme called Addison House will be a state-of-the-art building designed to meet the needs of older people and will be the first of four new similar facilities to be built across the city as part of Cardiff Council’s Older Person’s Strategy.
The facility will consist of one and two bedroom flats, comprising open plan living, private balconies, dual aspect design, which are flexible enough to cater for residents’ changing needs.
