Low energy council homes to be built in Exeter
The first phase of a new scheme will create 35 new Passivhaus council homes for Exeter residents. The completed scheme will also introduce car club bikes and cars for community use.
The scheme will deliver 91 new homes in total. As the homes will be built to the Passivaus low energy building standard, tenants will have lower heating bills and a draft free, stable and healthy environment to live in.
The Council’s Housing Team has set a target of delivering 500 new Council homes for the city between 2020 and 2030.
Action B13. Demonstrate the viability of building net-zero carbon homes using modern construction techniques by reviewing the opportunity for local authorities to use their own land in partnership with a developer.
Action B15. Anchor institutions to deliver net-zero new build to set an example to other regional organisations and establish the South West as a leading region for low-carbon buildings.
