South Wiltshire’s second ‘green open homes’ event, co-ordinated by Wilton Community Land Trust, is aimed at inspiring home owners with an interest in green living to visit eco-friendly properties to share energy saving experiences. The Green Open Homes network aims to support low-carbon open homes events across the country through free resources and advice. Open homes days are arranged to encourage people who have made low carbon improvements to their homes to share their experiences with neighbours and visitors.
Under this scheme private home-owner properties are showcased to the general public and C G Fry & Son is the first developer in the region to take part in this popular green initiative.
Sarah Ackroyd Event Co-organiser South Wiltshire Green Doors says: “The Green Open Homes events are an excellent way to demonstrate the benefits of low-carbon renovations such as solar panels, solid wall insulation and draught-proofing. Normally we arrange visits to local homes that are warm, green and cheap to run and this is the first time we have invited a developer. We are delighted that the well-respected independent developer C G Fry & Son which has a reputation for high-quality properties, were able to open their doors to the public to demonstrate their commitment to playing their part in being greener by design.”
Wyndham Place is an eco-friendly designed development in the desirable village of Tisbury which, with its great amenities and transport links was named in the Top 25 places to live in Britain in The Sunday Times.
As part of a green-scheme travel plan introduced in conjunction with Wiltshire Council, C G Fry & Son is making finances available to install bike-racks around Tisbury and at the local railway station. Up to £800 is available to each household towards the costs of travel by means other than the private car. This sum on offer is available to the first occupiers of each dwelling for one year from the date of occupancy.
Annabel Legg, Sales Manager, C G Fry says: “Energy efficiency, cutting carbon emissions using a fabric first approach and the use of sustainable materials is fundamental in the way we design and build our homes. We utilise Samsung Eco Heating Systems to provide heating and hot water in all our properties at Wyndham Place. We have also introduced a green travel scheme which has been well-received by residents.”
