Hastoe's new homes in Newport, Essex, have been shortlisted in the Best Green Scheme category for the 24Housing Awards 2019.
The development was officially opened in September 2019. Of the 34 homes available, 25 are for affordable rent while a further nine are for shared ownership. All the homes are prioritised for people with a connection to Newport and will be kept affordable forever for local people.
All the homes are built to the high energy efficient AECB Building Standard, a technique that helps to reduce fuel bills and carbon emissions by 70% compared to the UK average.
