Yulli to deliver new sustainable Hull homes

Hartlepool based Yulli Homes has started work on an eco-friendly, affordable housing scheme at Swanland Village, near Hull.

The development will include 26 new sustainable homes for local residents to rent, created in partnership with Railways Housing Association, and part-funded by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

Each building will include an innovative ‘sedum’ roof, which is planted with an array of herbs and flowers to improve insulation of the building as well as reducing the surface run off of rainfall.

Alexandra Ross, partnership manager at Yuill Homes, said: “We’re delighted that construction work has started on our first affordable housing scheme in East Yorkshire.

“Yuill Homes has a reputation for delivering sustainable communities across the North East and we’re committed to repeating this success here in Swanland village.

“We’re particularly looking forward to working alongside Railway Housing and their residents on such an exciting eco-friendly scheme - that will integrate new sustainable techniques with traditional building methods to provide new high quality homes for residents.”

The homes will be built to the Code for Sustainable Homess Level 3 standard, and will be installed with solar thermal panels to provide up to 60% free hot water for occupants.

Anne Rowlands, Chief Executive of Railway Housing Association, added: “Our core business is to provide affordable housing for the over-55s and we have done this successfully for over 90 years.

“We already own social rented homes in the East Riding of Yorkshire and with this new development we are looking forward to making a further contribution to providing much-needed affordable homes in the area.

“We are also delighted that our current residents will benefit from moving into new, high quality, energy efficient properties.”
