Work starts on Hayfield Grove development in Hallow

Hayfield has commenced construction at its first EPC A-rated development. Located in Hallow, Worcestershire, the £20m development will feature 55 zero carbon ready homes.

Hayfield secured planning approval for the 5.5-acre (2.23Ha) site – which is located adjacent to Greenhill Lane – from Malvern Hills District Council earlier this year. The development is being part-funded by the housebuilder’s £67m facility with OakNorth Bank. The new scheme is next to Hayfield Meadow; a residential development which was completed in 2019.

The 55 one-, two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom bungalows, houses and apartments have been specified with Air Source Heat Pumps, solar PV panels, energy-efficient underfloor heating, smart electric vehicle fast-charging points, and fibre optic broadband to each property.

Andy Morris, Managing Director of Hayfield, said: “Only 2% of new homes are currently being built to EPC A standards, which indicates the highest energy efficiency and performance standards. While our standard specification already delivers zero carbon ready homes, which achieve a high EPC B-rating, we have taken the decision enhance the eco credentials for Hayfield Grove further with solar PV panels. 

“The future residents will benefit from a home that self-generates a proportion of household electricity, which when combined with our air source heat pumps, will significantly minimise grid energy use. In addition, EV charging points are installed as standard, enabling solar energy to be used to power cars too. These outstanding homes will be fit for the future, while combining the kerb appeal of traditional architecture and considerable net biodiversity gains across the site.”
