Anywl Homes plan to build 120 energy efficient homes in Heywood. The Homes will include features to help protect the planet and save homeowners money including air source heat pumps and electric vehicle charging points.

The new development at Whittle Brook Park features wider cavities to external walls and improved air tightness which provides increased levels of insulation and reduces heat loss along with increase levels of ground floor and roof/loft insulation.

John Grime who is managing director for Anywl Homes Lancashire remarked “Whittle Brook Park is a landmark scheme for Anywl – it was our first development in Greater Manchester and the first to feature air source heat pumps with every home”

“It’s a prime example of how, as a forward-thinking business, we’re embracing new green technology into our designs to deliver energy efficient homes. The whole development will be gas-free and, instead of traditional gas boilers, homes will have air source heat pumps”

“An air source heat pump is more efficient than gas boilers which means potentially cheaper bills when it comes to heating and hot water in the home.”

Whittle Brook Park is part of the wider West Hopwood community which will see around 1,000 new homes built, plus the creation of 1.5m sq/ft of employment space, a local centre, new primary school, extensive public open space and sports pitches. The wider scheme will see £402m invested in the area.

As part of its share, Anywl will make community contributions worth almost £5.5m towards education, transport, highways, green spaces and sports pitches. This includes over £2.7m towards the cost of the new link road, connecting the West Hopwood community directly with junction 19 of the M62.
