The new development, Horizons Millennium Village, will consist of 151 properties ranging from 2 bedroom apartments to 4 bedroom homes with prices starting from £155,995. Not only has each property been designed to meet exacting standards in terms of energy usage and resource management but the processes used to build them are also carefully managed to reduce their impact on the environment. Waste from the development will be reduced dramatically whilst the energy used to construct each home will be reduced by 30%.

The development will provide facilities to increase home re-cycling by 50% whilst ensuring that each home reduces its metered energy and water consumption by 20%. Amongst other measures to minimise the development’s environmental impact are a 10% improvement on both the use of natural light and noise proofing.

With sustainability clearly at the forefront of their minds, the designers have also turned their hand to building a sustainable sense of community around the development with the introduction of another innovation, “The Homezone.”

According to sales director Ian Ruthven of Barratt Leeds, the Homezone is an integral part of the new development. “We wanted to build a development that is truly sustainable, not just in terms of its impact on the environment but in the wider sense as well. That means we also had to look at ways of building a new community to inhabit this remarkable place.

“We’ve narrowed the driving space with trees and shrubs and got rid of all the traditional road signage to reduce the speed of cars moving around within the development. Together, we predict that these measures will ensure a traffic speed of about ten mph, this will allow residents to walk or cycle and play in safety.

“We wanted to create a sense that people were sharing the space in the development so we’ve got rid of the old idea of having a raised pavement and a road surface. All the surfaces on the development are on the same level with parking spaces denoted by a change in the colour of the surface. We also expect that, as the highway landscaping will be planted for the benefit of the residents, it will be maintained by them and used for community events, etc...”

Managing Director of Barratt Leeds, Chris Burton also commented on the new development saying: “We are extremely proud of the progress so far and are looking forward to finishing the development as soon as possible. This really is a landmark development, not just for our company but for the region as well”
