This will be Mid Sussex’s first net zero housing development of scale. It will set the benchmark for how local housebuilders can better respond to the climate crisis, while meeting local housing needs.

A net zero carbon building is highly energy efficient and powered from renewable energy sources. This means that each year, the amount of carbon emissions associated with each home’s operational energy is zero. This approach exceeds the standards set out in Building Regulations.

Net zero carbon homes will ease the cost-of-living pressures for future residents, as these homes cost far less to heat than the majority of the District’s existing housing stock. With over 76% of the District’s homes heated entirely by gas and less than 0.5% being heated by renewable energy alone, this will help kickstart the transition into a cleaner, greener future.


More on sustainability


Our design philosophy sees homes fronting onto green open spaces, and integrating with the surrounding landscape and benefit local wildlife. By providing bird and bat boxes on homes, retaining the most ecologically sensitive areas, and new areas of planting, we will deliver at least 10% net gain in biodiversity, including supporting a nationally recognized landscape-scale recovery project.

We will also deliver our award-winning biodiversity educational programme, Eddie and Ellie in a local school. Helping future generations understand more about the natural environment.
