Finding new ways to build is an important aspect of how we will develop sustainable communities that balancing the needs of the population with the essential requirement to minimise the impact of development on the environment and reduced housebuilding’s contribution to climate change.
We have worked with Ilke Homes Land Limited on its ground-breaking sale and purchase by a modular house builder, the first that it had delivered following major investment from Homes England.
The scheme drew national publicity driven by the Housing Minister, Robert Jenrick, because of the environmentally friendly nature of a modular house builder’s product and Homes England’s investment in delivering a sustainable development. As set out in his speech at the Policy Exchange and Create Streets, the Government is committed to a programme of establishing practical steps to deliver more beautiful, sustainable homes faster through the Future Homes Standard and National Design Code.
The deal is the first time the UK government agency has ever invested directly into a modular housing factory and is testament to Homes England’s dynamic approach to addressing structural issues within our housing and construction industries.
