The Government is encouraging small businesses, designers and manufacturers to come forward with ideas for low-carbon homes to meet the highest standards of design. The objective is also to meet the needs of the country’s growing elderly population with technology and the innovations to improve quality of life. The Housing Minister wants to see schemes that are age-friendly and inclusive – appealing to a variety of age groups and adaptable to how needs will change as people become older - and to have a low environmental impact. Homes should also encourage healthy living, and be deliverable.
These are clearly becoming important matters in all new proposals for homes in the UK. See more at www.homeof2030.com
