Over 100 homes planned for Stroud

A new eco-minded development seeks to build more than 100 homes on one of Stroud’s industrial estates in Cheltenham.

Developer Newland Homes recently revealed plans in a proposal submitted to Stroud District Council requesting planning permission for 111 low-to-zero-carbon residences to be introduced to the Daniels Industrial Estate.

Property developers and architects in Nantwich, Cheltenham and other areas around the UK are increasingly involved in projects producing sustainable homes. The UK government is committed to reducing the carbon emissions of homes and making them more energy efficient, encouraging professional enterprises operating in the housing sector to aid its efforts.

Director for Newland Homes, Jeremy Drew, commented:

“Everyone has a role in the fight against climate change, and as an independent housebuilder, it’s within our power to do this.”

The newly planned properties will be a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes with two to three bedrooms and apartments with one to two bedrooms. A wealth of innovated technology designed to lower emissions produced by households will be incorporated into the buildings, such as solar panels capable of collecting energy and air source heat pumps instead of traditional gas boiler systems.

The development will also be futureproofed, providing the facility for electric vehicle charging. Wiring will be installed during construction in preparation for charge points to be fitted as and when required.

The recent pandemic has also shaped the design of the new accommodation, with developers insisting that residences offer larger spaces for studying and working to cope with increased home-schooling and people conducting their professional roles remotely.
