Promoting Sustainable Rural Development
One of CDN Planning’s Directors is currently developing a scheme for three dwellings with an BRE/EcoHomes Excellent rating that are virtually carbon zero. Each unit is built to UK Government “Lifetime Homes” standards, providing flexible office space that provides a live-work option but can equally be used as a single ground floor bedroom for the elderly or disabled. Each property has two solar thermal panels and a wood pellet boiler system providing hot water and space heating from renewable resources.
Currently nearing completion, the development was commended by the Design Commission for Wales for being innovative in their design and an example of good residential development in rural areas.
