30/11/2018
Hastoe's Passivhaus development at Sharnbrook (Beds) was highly commended at the Inside Housing Development Awards.

 

The mixed tenure Passivhaus scheme - comprising affordable rent, shared ownership and market sale properties - was shortlisted in the Best Affordable Housing Development category.

Supported with funding from Homes England and Bedford Borough Council, the Passivhaus standard reduces fuel bills to £2-3 per week. Priority for the homes are given to those with a connection to the local area.

The scheme has also been highly commended at the 24Housing Awards and a finalist at the National Housing Awards. It was officially opened in July 2018.
