Work has begun on Kent’s new zero carbon neighbourhood; the pioneering energy-efficient housing development being delivered in partnership with off-site manufacturer NetZero Buildings.

The new development of six high-quality, zero carbon, family homes for rent, will transform vacant land in Oak Road, Sittingbourne in to one of the most energy-efficient housing schemes in the country.

The new all-electric modular homes in Sittingbourne are able to achieve carbon neutrality thanks to their air-tight, well-insulated walls and will feature photo-voltaic solar roof panels, to enable the properties to generate their own electricity. They also have hot water heated by an air source heat pump to further reduce electricity consumption.

Homes England has provided finance to part fund the development, which is due to be completed by the end of January 2021.

As we all begin the economic recovery from COVID-19 we are extremely excited about delivering Kent’s new zero carbon neighbourhood. Our country not only faces a crisis in the quantity of homes but also the quality, as well as a global climate emergency. We’re proud to be leading the way with a new generation of housing which helps to tackle these problems.
