The planning application for the development of 42 dwellings, and which will be built using Pasivhaus technology, was given the go-ahead by Council’s planning committee on 7th February 2018
This development of affordable housing will contain 10 council owned units, the first to be built in Heath for over 60 years. It is understood that these 10 units will be used to re-house older council tenants who are wishing to down-size from larger properties, and which frees up much needed family accommodation.
Fenella said ‘The plans have been drawn up in full consultation with Heath councillors over a period of some 3 years. A lot of consultation with residents & the public at large has taken place, and adjustments have been made along the way to accommodate certain aspects of the development’.
