Sustainable homes coming to Waterford…

I was interested to hear this week about the development of a group of sustainable homes in Waterford on the edge of Hertford. Planning permission has been granted for the construction of eight two-storey homes on Sacombe Road in Waterford which will be low or zero carbon housing. They will have photovoltaic panels on their roofs, be naturally heated and ventilated, harvest rainwater and be able to use some solar thermal hot water. I understand that they will exceed the highest ranking in the Code for Sustainable Homes and that a condition of the planning permission is that the developers will be required to build a footpath link and provide £10,000 towards transport measures which will encourage people to use alternative methods of transport other than cars.
