NEAR EXETER, EAST DEVON
Our proposal incorporates urban spaces, buildings and landscape that are in keeping with the character of surrounding historic Devon villages. The houses and hard landscape draw on local vernacular precedent and incorporate high quality traditional materials. The planting adopts native species including local tree varieties.
44 houses are provided, set within a traditional streetscape including a village green. Half of the units are affordable (shared ownership or social rent).
The project will be delivered using MMC (Modern Methods of Construction) utilising either a modular or panelised system. This will result in an estimated 67% reduction in energy and a 45% reduction in material use. In addition, the scheme will incorporate either air source heat pumps or a connection to a district heating system, utilise photovoltaic cells to generate electricity, and provide a large number of electric car charging points. The site provides a new connection to a dedicated cycle path that leads into Exeter.
