North Lincolnshire housing provider, Ongo, has submitted planning permission to build eight new carbon neutral homes in Scunthorpe.
Subject to planning approval, the homes will replace garages and unused land at two sites near Chaucer Avenue in Westcliff, and there is set to be a mix of three and four-bedroom homes with dedicated car parking spaces.
Amy Schoenmaker, Development Project Manager at Ongo said:
“We are beyond excited to be leading locally with our first carbon neutral homes, keeping our promise to look after the environment.”
“There are a huge list of benefits to them, and after taking the plans to public consultation, we were delighted to make changes based on feedback from local residents.
“A high percentage of the garages on this land are unused, and with demand for larger properties in the area so high, it’s great to hopefully be able to deliver those.
“This scheme is being used as a blueprint by Ongo for possible future carbon neutral homes and we are hoping to get approval as soon as possible so we can get started.”
