New Eco-friendly homes break ground at Forest Cottage

Last week saw the start of a new 14-home development break ground at Forest Cottage in Halifax.

In a backdrop of housing shortages, it’s good to see new builds happening, and also using a local firm to build the homes in West End Joiners & Builders.

Calderdale Council Leader, Jane Scullion and Connect Housing’s Martyn Broadest.

Martyn Broadest, Director of Home at Connect Housing, said:

“Connect Housing is delighted to be starting on our latest new housing scheme in Halifax.  The homes have been designed to be super energy efficient and zero-carbon in use, which means future residents will be able to keep warm and comfortable with affordable energy bills, whilst benefitting the environment at the same time.

“We are grateful to Calderdale Council’s Leader, Councillor Jane Scullion and her colleagues for coming along to the ground-breaking to help celebrate  construction starting on this new project.”

Councillor Scott Patient, Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Climate Action, Active Travel and Housing, said:

“Supporting Connect Housing to deliver sustainable new homes at Forest Cottage is another step forward in the Council’s priority to tackle the climate emergency. The development will contribute to the pledge to be net zero by 2038 as part of Zero Carbon Calderdale.
