Highlighting our new energy efficient homes on World Environment Day 

This World Environment Day, we’re highlighting the energy efficient features of our new homes in Baschurch

Today is World Environment Day, an annual event organised by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), which brings people together from across the globe to help protect the Earth. 

Homes at our new development Parry Close, in Baschurch, include a range of energy-efficient features including solar panels and electric charging points. External cavity walls have been constructed using the latest insulation, which incorporates heat-reflective, low-emissive technology. 

Bird boxes, bat boxes and hedgehog highways have also been installed to encourage and protect local wildlife. 

The construction of these 20 new homes, including a mixture of one-bedroom apartments, one and two-bedroom bungalows and two and three-bedroom houses, provide much-needed homes for affordable rent and shared ownership for people with a local connection to the village.  

Kerry Bolister, Director of development at Housing Plus Group, said: “Our Parry Close development incorporates the latest ‘green’ technology, meaning they are more insulated and energy efficient than older properties.  

“Not only does this reduce the energy bills for our customers, but there are also huge benefits for the environment too.”  

Work on site has been carried out on behalf of Housing Plus Group by Shrewsbury-based construction firm, TC Homes, who formally handed over the development last month. 

Scott Drummond, TC Homes Development and Planning Manager, said: “At Parry Close we have installed Viridian PV panels that will supply solar electric to the homes, including the heating and hot water, reducing the cost of electric and how much they use off the grid. The homes have also been built from sustainable Timber frame.” 

The homes were developed with £1,006,000 in funding from Homes England and a £125,000 subsidy from Shropshire Council.
