Vaughan Road in Whipton Village has been selected for comprehensive development of modern apartments around a communal garden. These new homes are constructed to the highest environmental standards to reduce energy costs, create healthy homes and be climate resilient.
Over 65% of these new homes are ‘affordable’, and 60 homes will be available for social rent and for shared ownership, with priority lettings to local residents. There will be 8 affordable wheelchair-accessible homes within the development too. The remaining 32 homes will be for open market sale.
A large central green space will become the focal point of the scheme. All apartments are designed to enjoy a view into the shared landscaped gardens. The whole development will be designed to Passivhaus standards which means highly sustainable and super low energy.
