Work Underway on Pamber Heath Development for Hastoe Housing
Hastoe Housing have selected WSL for construction of a low-density development of affordable housing on a rural exception site on the outskirts of the village of Pamber Heath. The 6 x two-bed houses, 2 x three-bed houses and block of 4 x one-bed flats will have exceptional sustainability credentials, as required for the Association of Environment Conscious Building (AECB Silver) certification. It is estimated that buildings achieving this standard can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 70%.
External materials will include red multi-stock brick, charcoal-coloured cladding, and dark grey window frames, and have been chosen to harmonise with the surrounding buildings. Any impact of the development has been further reduced by extensive green buffer zones and the retention of mature trees to the site boundary.
