THE first phase of a new £3.2 million eco-friendly housing development in a South Yorkshire town has been completed.
Some 29 new properties, designed by Sheffield based architects AA Design, are now finished at Montgomery Fields, in Wath-Upon-Dearne, Rotherham – and work on the second phase of the development has now begun.
The project, which started in February last year, has been developed by housing association Guinness Northern Counties, with Rotherham Council and building contractor Lovell.
The new homes at Montgomery Fields include properties for shared ownership and rent with an additional Rent2Homebuy option with nomination rights coming through Rotherham Council.
John Ray, of Guinness Northern Counties, said: “These properties offer some fantastic environmental features including solar panels, heat recovery systems, rain water harvesting and a sedum grass-covered roof.
“These are the first purpose-built eco-homes of their type in the local area but we are looking forward to providing more homes of this quality and standards as we continue to develop this area.”
