Latest Westbury Development Officially Launched

Posted 27 April 2022 by Keith Osborne

Newland Homes has released the first homes for sale at Heron Rise with help from the local mayor and councillors...

Newland Homes has officially opened its latest development, Heron Rise, on Station Road, Westbury, helped by Mayor Sheila Kimmins and town and county councillors who came together to mark the occasion.

Construction started at the end of last year on the 87 new homes, preceded by considerable groundworks to clear and level the brownfield site ready for its next chapter. The development provides a broad selection of quality, low-carbon housing for the Wiltshire town, from two-bedroom houses and apartments through to three- and four-bedroom homes, conveniently placed for easy access to Westbury train station.

Just 15 homes have been released in the first phase here. Some of the properties are eligible for the Help to Buy: Equity Loan Scheme, the government-backed scheme that lends first-time buyers up to 20% of the cost of a new build home, interest free for the first five years. With changes to working life, a work from home space and pre-installed fibre broadband provision has been designed and included for each property. Prices start from £325,000 at Heron Rise for a three-bedroom house.

Newland Homes takes a ‘climate considerate’ approach to building homes sustainably, be it through conserving heat by maximising airtightness and insulation, or encouraging biodiversity through introducing RHS approved, bee-friendly planting schemes and hedgehog highways which enable hedgehogs to move freely in order to find food. Over 560 metres of hedgehog highways are being installed at Heron Rise.

Marcus Evans, sales and marketing director for Newland Homes, commented: “We’re extremely proud of our low-carbon homes and we’re pleased to be launching these today with the help of our esteemed local councillors. New homes are, on average, 60% more energy efficient than existing properties and, according to the Office for National Statistics, the age of a property is the most significant factor associated with energy efficiency, ahead of fuel type and property type. As household costs continue to rise, ensuring your home is economical to run is one way to help protect against spiralling energy costs.”

Newland Homes was also the first traditional housebuilder in the UK to sign the United Nations Climate Neutral Now Pledge, which is a commitment to measure greenhouse gas emissions, implement means to reduce them, to consider offsetting and to report progress annually. It is on course to achieve at least a 50% reduction in its company carbon footprint by the end of 2024, and furthermore, it is retrospectively carbon neutral through offsetting.
