NEW homes that are environmentally friendly have now been built.
The six houses, which all reach a sustainable standard, were the subject of a key handover ceremony last week.
They are in Allotment Road, Sarisbury Green and were funded by Fareham Borough Council.
The homes have been built to Passivhaus certification standards, which aims at reducing the requirement for heating and cooling, while creating excellent indoor air quality and comfort levels.
Now that they are complete, the two-bedroom homes will be rented to families on the council’s housing list.
Executive member for health and housing, Cllr Kay Mandry said: ‘I am thrilled these homes are now complete as they can set an example for houses we wish to provide in the future.’
Justin Elliott, divisional director with Interserve, the international support services and construction group responsible for building the project, said: ‘Interserve are proud to have constructed Fareham council’s first ever full Passivhaus houses at Sarisbury.
‘This pilot scheme offers a new solution for homes within sustainable communities.’
