A former agricultural field, this site fell into the category of a ‘rural exceptions site’ in the small west country village of Mullion, Cornwall.
Following a comprehensive review of the local housing needs, Eliot Design & Build Ltd carried out various consultations jointly with their development partner, Coastline Housing Association culminating in a public consultation in the WI Village Hall attended by many of the local parishioners.
All Affordable units will be constructed utilizing a fully insulated ‘timber frame’ solution, incorporating Air Source Heat Pumps in order to achieve energy efficient homes with low running costs.
As part of the overall strategic viability, a degree of ‘cross-subsidary’ was needed to provide ‘in-house’ funding fro the sale of the open market homes.
