A shortlist of companies bidding to build England’s first ‘eco-village’ has been announced.
English Partnerships’ first eco-village – a 150 home site in Bristol - will be designed to achieve Level 6 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
Hanham Hall is a 6.1 hectare former hospital site.
An evaluation panel – advised by members from BRE and the Department for Communities and Local Government together with appointed consultants ENTEC and Jacob – made its selection based on developers who demonstrated they understood, not only the aspirations of the Carbon Challenge, but also the opportunities presented by the site with its Grade II listed building.
The shortlisted developers are:
• Artisan H
• Barratt Homes
• Edward Ware Homes
• Gleeson Homes
• Places for People
• Taylor Wimpey
• Urban Splash (South-West)
The seven shortlisted candidates will be invited to submit a more substantive response to the detailed site brief issued by English Partnerships.
