Innovative new homes come to Chepstow

MHA are developing 17 new ‘innovative’ homes across two derelict ex garage sites in Pembroke Road and Western Avenue, Chepstow.

The developments will comprise two house types; a terraced mews style house with a patio area and an interlocking courtyard bungalow.  The innovative design concepts bring to life the specific housing ‘wants and needs’ of two definitive demographics; younger ‘first timers’ and older people wanting to downsize.

The designs are founded on the principles of making places for people and closely mirror the homes recently built by MHA in Abergavenny and Caldicot, for which MHA won the ‘Innovation’ category at the Constructing Excellence Wales awards in 2020.

MHA are passionate about reducing embodied carbon in the construction process. The highly sustainable homes will be built utilising timber frame construction, and will be energy efficient with a Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) in excess of 100.

The homes will be developed utilising £3.1m of funding by the Welsh Government’s Innovative Housing Programme and are the result of our ongoing successful partnership with the Welsh School of Architecture, Capsel, Monmouthshire County Council and LRM Planning.

As part of the community benefits being delivered by MHA to the local community, our construction partner Capsel are repairing the dilapidated scout hut adjacent to the Pembroke Road site.
