Yet more focus on Eco Homes
Just this week it has been reported of the sudden surge of interest in Eco Property in recent times, in the last two years. To represent this, property developers are now being enabled with the necessary consent to develop actual estates and communities honing the advances of Green Sustainable building methodologies.
At present there is a development taking place in East Grinstead, West Sussex. The small group of nine flats is part of a revolution in the way people in Britain are choosing to live their lives. Pressure on incomes and the rise of the single household particularly, as well as concern for the environment, is fuelling a huge increase in “co-housing” – groups of homes that pool resources to lower overall costs. Shared areas can include outdoor space, an entertainment area, guest accommodation, district heating systems and laundry rooms.
The benefits of living in such a development are not just limited to the benefits such as decreased emissions generated. Home owners can expect reduced living expenses are as new co-housing homes are designed to be better quality than most new homes and usually include district heating schemes with one enormous boiler serving several homes, a more efficient way of heating than several small boilers heating an individual house.
As pressed on, there is a whole new way in which Eco Homes are now being considered as a viable and worthy option. There are the energy savings which have long been known, however as the market advances it will be the cost savings which will make the difference. With gas and oil prices continuing to surge, the UK are becoming more adaptive to Green / Sustainable ways in which to live and likewise it is no longer so expense to purchase a full Eco Friendly property.
