Big Zero Report 2023

Tenants have started moving into Mansfield’s first ultra-low energy council housing.

Four two-bed semi-detached homes have been built by Robert Woodhead Ltd on behalf of Mansfield District Council, with low carbon heating and cooling systems at the centre of their development.

The housing has also been designed using software that directly calculate its energy use and carbon emissions.

Overall, the cost of building the homes was £659,000.

Executive Mayor Andy Abrahams said: “The new tenants of these homes will be moving into houses of the highest specification and with very low bills for energy consumption.

“These kinds of homes are the future if we want to be serious about tackling climate change and reducing carbon emissions to a sustainable level by 2040.”
