Beck Row: Tilia Homes 60 new properties underway
Work is underway on a new 60-home development that will see all properties fitted with air-source heat pumps and electric vehicle charging stations.
Tilia Homes is building Osprey View in Beck Row, near Mildenhall, and says the project is a ‘historic development’ due to its green credentials.
The company has also pledged to contribute over £500,000 to local education infrastructure as well as the local library.
West Suffolk Council gave the green light earlier this year for all 60 two-, three- and four-bedroom properties.
Tilia Homes says the scheme will include a number of two-bedroom bungalows and a proportion of affordable homes ensuring the development meets the growing demand for energy efficient homes from the wide range of buyers on the property scale.
David Thomas, Sales and Marketing Director at Tilia Homes Eastern, said: “We are delighted to have started construction on our development in Beck Row, and we are delighted to see the first homes completed and their new owners begin to build. move in.
“We are incredibly proud of our plans for Osprey View, ensuring that our methods of building homes evolve to become more sustainable – choosing to install more environmentally friendly heat pumps rather than central heating. gas, for example. This is at a time when we understand that the cost of energy remains a key factor for home seekers. »
Councilors approving the plans were impressed with the sustainability of the project – with the developer choosing air source heat pumps over gas and planning for electric cars.
Other new developments in Suffolk have been criticized for their reliance on gas – which is set to be phased out from 2035 – and calls for more new properties to offer electric alternatives and mandatory solar panels.
Osprey View is in a prime location to the north west of Mildenhall, with local amenities including a primary school and nursery, community centre, pubs and restaurants, local shop and church.
The official launch of the development and show home is scheduled for next spring, but people can register their interest in the homes now.
