David Orr, Chief Executive of the National Housing Federation visited the scheme on Tuesday 4 April to see the properties take shape and find out more about this unique development.
We gave him a tour of the scheme and this is what he thought.
“It’s a fantastic site, the houses look terrific and I like the space standards and the fact that they are going to be very cheap to live in.
I think sometimes people can get the narrative about this kind of housing wrong – far too often we just talk about energy efficiency and climate change; when actually what we’re doing is building sustainable homes that are cheap, warm and great to live in. That’s really important and we should be doing more of it. This development from Connect Housing is a great example of getting it right.”
