Developer and operator of later living communities Inspired Villages has exchanged contracts on its newest site in Farnham Royal, Buckinghamshire.
The company plans to transform the 12-acre site into a community of more than 200 over-65s by providing 177 apartments, cottages and bungalows. Alongside homes, the community will also include a thriving village centre with a spa, wellbeing facilities, a bistro restaurant and lounges.
This Autumn, Inspired Villages is due to open its ninth operational village, Millfield Green, the UK’s first Net Zero Carbon (regulated energy) retirement community. Millfield Green is the blueprint for all Inspired Villages future developments, including Farnham Royal, as the business strives to deliver its ambition of being Net Zero carbon (regulated energy) by 2030.
At Millfield Green 100 per cent of its homes have been optimised using ground source heat pumps and solar panels and the infrastructure is installed to facilitate electric car charging throughout. The development also uses high-quality insulation, ventilation and high-performance triple-glazed windows, resulting in using only clean, REGO backed energy, as opposed to fossil fuels.
Neal Dale, Chief Development & Property Officer, says: “As with all our developments, our plans for Farnham Royal will ensure we take every step to minimise our impact on the environment whilst creating valuable natural spaces for the wider community to benefit from.
“We look forward to sharing more details of our plans for the site and engaging with the local community in due course.”
