Caring for the environment

We have an excellent track record of building high quality new homes that are comfortable, highly energy and water efficient, and which aim to improve our customer’s quality of life. In choosing a new home from Countryside Annington you are reducing your environmental footprint and saving money which at this time of ever increasing utility costs is important.

Around 25% of the UK’s carbon emissions are generated in homes and in Britain on average £1 in every £3 spent on energy in older homes is wasted immediately.However, a new home from Countryside Annington is on average 6.5 times more energy efficient than one built just 30 years ago.

Our new homes are well designed,comfortable, safe and adaptable, and wherever possible they are constructed from materials that have a reduced impact on the environment. In recognition of this we have received more than 120 awards for sustainability since 2000.

We are reducing our environmental impacts by measuring our schemes against the Government’s Code for Sustainable Homes (the Code). The Code provides a comprehensive measure of the sustainability of individual new homes and developments. The Code ensures that new homes deliver measurable improvements in key areas such as carbon dioxide emissions and water use.

The Environment and the Code for Sustainable Homes

Each development is rated from Code Level 1 through to zero carbon at Code Level 6. The Mount has been rated as Code Level 4.

It therefore helps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, which in turn safeguards the environment.
