Summerfield Homes submits plans for a biodiverse scheme of net zero bungalows

Somerset-based housebuilder Summerfield Homes has submitted an outline planning application for nine carbon neutral bungalows at land off Well Close in Winscombe.

The land has been owned by the housebuilder for some time however now with comprehensive plans including significant areas of publicly accessible green infrastructure, land set aside specifically to create a biodiversity betterment in excess of 25% and the commitment to delivering the bungalows as net zero Carbon, they have decided to move forwards with an application.

This application also falls in line with the local plan policy to bring forward small sites adjoining the village. The land off Well Close abuts the settlement and will be in keeping with the form of the existing houses adjoining the scheme.

Managing Director of Summerfield Homes, Ed Khodabandehloo, said: “This is an exciting proposed project delivering much needed housing whilst keeping the properties very energy efficient and the scheme’s environmental impact positive.”
