Magenta Living purchases ‘low carbon’ homes in New Ferry, Wirral

Magenta Living, Wirral’s largest affordable housing provider, has purchased three low carbon homes at Windsor Close, New Ferry, Wirral from Property Development Group, Starship.  

The 3-bedroom homes will provide a state-of-the-art home living experience for those wanting to reduce their carbon footprint. The high thermal performance homes are Energy Efficient Rating (EPC) Band A, the highest energy efficiency rating achieved within a property.  

The homes come complete with solar panels on the roof. Heating and hot water is provided by an air source heat pump meaning there is no gas central heating which will ultimately result in reduced energy bills and a reduced environmental and carbon impact when compared to traditional house builds.  

Paul Anson, Executive Director of Growth and Resilience at Magenta Living said: “Magenta Living has recently completed its 1,000th new build home. Now we are thinking about our next 1,000 new homes and are delighted to be working with Starship on homes that incorporate the latest innovations in construction. The Starship approach to Modern Methods of Construction has resulted in a development that has solar panels and air source heat pump along with high thermal efficiency meaning these new homes have a reduced carbon footprint compared to traditional homes – saving the planet and saving customers’ money on their heating bills.  The fact the development is in New Ferry is a great contribution to the local community.

“We are excited to monitor feedback on these homes so that we can look at widening our property portfolio with similar homes in the future. Providing low carbon homes is a key target within Magenta Living’s Climate Change Strategic Framework and I look forward to providing homes ‘fit for the future’ for our customers to live in and enjoy.” 

Dave Dargan, Director of Starship commented: “Its been fantastic working with Magenta Living to deliver these innovative, zero carbon, factory built homes. To have brought such an exciting project to this community has been fantastic and has created a real buzz around the area. Not only were these homes built by people from the local area, they will also have some of the lowest running costs of any home around." 

New Ferry is one of 21 neighbourhoods in which Magenta Living operates across Wirral. The new homes are positioned opposite one of Magenta Living’s many community properties which provides a range of activities for the local community. This is a popular location for the new homes being close to local shops with great transport links. The neighbourhood has a great community focus and the new homes will hopefully support the regeneration of the New Ferry area, ensuring Magenta Living continues to deliver its Vision of creating Vibrant… homes, lives, neighbourhoods.
