Sustainable homes planned for Hillingdon

A residential development planned for Hayes in Hillingdon will see 400 new homes constructed, each benefiting from sustainable features.

The recently revealed scheme has been awarded a green light from the town planning committee for Hillingdon Council, allowing work to now begin on the Clayton Road site, which is situated close by a section of the Grand Union Canal.

The new residences will all be built to modern standards and will feature sustainable solutions that can harness renewable energy instead of traditional fossil fuels like oil and gas. Air source heat pumps and solar panels will both be installed in the properties as standard, offering low-carbon options to answer home power needs. Furthermore, the parking spaces that will be offered to residents will include facilities for cars powered by electric batteries.

Sustainable features are fast becoming a critical part of new building projects across the UK, with architects in Chester, Hayes and other places including the latest innovations in their proposed designs.

As well as its eco-friendly elements, the newly planned development is aiming to provide affordable family housing for the local area. Out of the 400 residences planned for the scheme, over a quarter will be designed as affordable options, 68 of which will be available for families to let.

Up until now, this part of the Grand Union canal has not been accessible to the public, however, following the development’s completion, an attractive waterfront area will be created nearby, along with a new 1,400 square metre commercial hub.
