Planning permission granted for 160 new Low Energy homes at Nottingham’s Trent Basin

Nottingham City Council has approved a planning application for the development of a new residential area comprising 160 low energy homes at Trent Basin, a news report in the local media has recently revealed.

The new residential zone will be managed by specialist regeneration developer Blueprint and is the result of a collaboration with the government’s Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

Trent Basin is located within Nottingham Waterside, an area widely acknowledged as one of Nottingham’s least developed assets. Stretching from Trent Bridge to Colwick Park, the area is the focus of major redevelopment proposals with Blueprint and HCA’s development as a major catalyst for change.

The planning application for the scheme has been approved by Nottingham City Council’s planning committee and, subject to final planning consent, work on Trent Basin is set to start this summer with the first phase of 41 homes completed in the autumn of 2015.

The nine-acre site off Trent Lane has long waterside frontage with attractive views over the River Trent to Lady Bay. Trent Basin will provide homes with a mix of contemporary quality and low energy costs, and will likely feature mostly three- to four-bed homes.

The HeatSave thermostatic radiator valves represent some of the easiest to install and most cost-effective energy-saving measures out there, as they enable users to set specific functioning times for each valve, and, since radiators are individually controlled, home owners are fully capable to maximise the zoning potential and reduce energy consumption in those areas that are not used for longer periods of time (as for example, dining or sitting rooms and kitchens during the night, etc.).

Additionally, the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves also provide an automatic exercising feature when unused for 7 days, whose purpose is to minimise seizing of radiator valves in warmer months.

All in all, the HeatSave TRVs enable users to achieve some pretty impressive savings, as they will help reduce your heating bills by up to 30%.
