Open day at eco-friendly housing scheme

House hunters are invited to discover our innovative eco-friendly housing scheme in the Bretch Hill area of Banbury.

Published: Monday, 4th November 2019

Our Build! team is inviting people to a drop-in open day at its Hope Close development on Saturday, 9 November from 10:00am to 1:00pm.

The 11 two and three-bedroom homes represent the first affordable scheme in Oxfordshire to have Passive House certification, the gold standard for environmental credentials.

They are being offered for sale as affordable shared ownership homes with the support of the Government Help to Buy scheme. High quality insulation and an innovative heat recovery system minimise the homes’ environmental impact.

Hope Close is located to the rear of the Fairway Methodist Church, which we rebuilt in 2016.

To win Passive House certification, the Hope Close properties underwent a rigorous energy modelling and testing process. Their ventilation systems provide a constant flow of fresh air while removing moisture and pollutants.

Shares from 50 per cent are available.
