Hexham Gate receives visit from local MP Guy Opperman

Posted 25 April 2016

As the first development of its kind in the North East, it is not surprising that Hexham Gate has generated plenty of interest in recent months. With 6 homes already reserved before the foundations have even been laid, our Swedish-inspired low energy homes have caught the imagination of housebuyers in the region.

Work on the infrastructure for the 16-home development is now well underway and in April, Hexham’s MP Guy Opperman came to visit the 2.4 acre site situated off Corbridge Road.

Mr Opperman was introduced to some of the technologies to be featured in Trivselhus by Esh homes, including solar panels on the roof, mechanical ventilation and air source heat pumps to transfer warm external air into the building in the form of hot water.

Mr Opperman said: “I’m not aware of any other house builder building such sustainable, environmentally-friendly homes in such numbers anywhere else in Northumberland or indeed across the North-East.

“It is a welcome step forward both for the town and sustainable house building in general.”

Phil Brown, managing director of Trivselhus by Esh said: “The increase in demand from homeowners to reduce household costs and energy consumption, coupled with renewed pressure from Government to ensure that new and existing buildings are more efficient, means that low-energy properties are most certainly the homes of the future.

“We were delighted to be able to show Mr Opperman just what we are creating here at Hexham Gate as it really does mark the start of a major shift in UK house building.”
