Modular houses being lifted into place.

Tiverton’s new net-zero carbon housing development is coming into being at Shapland Place.

The innovative, modular houses, built in partnership with Zed Pods Ltd, have been delivered and lifted into position. Work took place in September of last year on the foundations and services to allow for delivery of the homes in December.

The site, which is owned by Mid Devon Council, used to be garages and car parking and will accommodate eight self-contained residential units of between one-bedroom and three-bedroom. The homes will have triple glazing, solar panels and private communal facilities including a secure cycle store and landscaped gardens. They are well situated, being close to the town centre and the River Exe.

This is one of several sustainable housing projects Mid Devon Council is delivering, with a scheme nearing completion at St Andrews Estate, Cullompton. Applications for additional modular housing developments have been submitted by the Council. Once finished, local residents will be able to bid for the properties through Devon Home Choice.

How Is This Helping Devon Reach Net-Zero?

This project will contribute to 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.
