Housebuilder Newland Homes has reached an industry milestone, announcing the completion of more than 100 zero carbon homes across the West.

Newland Homes built its first collection of zero carbon homes in North Somerset in 2021. Zero carbon homes are powered by renewable technologies, reducing the reliance on fossil fuels.

The announcement has been made in the run up to Net Zero Week which is the UK’s official national awareness week and the biggest net zero conference, bringing together stakeholders needed to reach net zero by 2050.

The homes have solar panels, air source heat pumps and high levels of insulation.

The Gloucestershire-based company has nearly 200 zero carbon homes in development for the next year.

Newland Homes has been widely praised for its trail-blazing approach to sustainability and is one of the few housebuilders to fully embrace green technology in its homes.

Marcus Evans, Sales & Marketing Director for Newland Homes, said: “In just a few short years we have conscientiously changed our approach to housebuilding. As we’re an independent housebuilder we have more agency to keep pace with the latest renewable technologies and build beyond legislation to help solve problems and overcome the obstacles to change.”

Joyce Sowersby and David Herman bought the 100th zero carbon home to be built by Newland Homes in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. The couple moved from a Georgian listed building in the heart of Glasgow: “We looked into retrofitting our apartment to make it more environmentally friendly, but it was prohibitively expensive and the results questionable. We have embraced the benefits of zero carbon living in a modern home and feel that the Government should legislate for all new build homes to be built this way” says Joyce.

Marcus continues: “Robust, forward-thinking policies are needed to incentivise the widespread adoption of renewable technologies in the housebuilding industry. The industry can, and should be, routinely building modern homes which respond to the environmental challenges of our age. At Newland Homes, we recognise that this is not a time to be resting on our laurels.”
