The £1.6million bungalow project has been built using some of the latest building technology as part of the Council’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions in the district.

An extra £18,000 has been spent on each new home to fit them with:

  • Air source heat pumps
  • Solar photovoltaic PV panels
  • Electric vehicle charging points
  • Fire sprinkler systems
  • A full customer care package including remote door entry, falls notification and a care alarm.
  • Two of the properties are wheelchair accessible

In addition to the new homes the Council has also invested in upgrading other bungalows on the Pine View estate.

Existing bungalows have received new roofs, windows, minor structural works, new kitchens and bathrooms, making them more energy efficient.

Fencing has been installed to give customers contained private gardens rather than communal areas.  Additional car parking spaces have been created for existing residents.
