We’re very excited that planning has been granted for our first ‘Paragraph 55’ house in Nottinghamshire, also the first for Newark and Sherwood District Council. The house displays innovative design ideas by using exemplary sustainable techniques to bring a brown-field site in open countryside back into use. The low impact home will be constructed from straw bales, finished in breathable lime render, providing both structure and insulation from one locally sourced material. Site orientation and internal planning along with simple green technology will ensure energy demands for this house are minimal.
