By: Rachael Doyle   •   May 10, 2016

Earlier this week during the Lords Report Stage of the Housing and Planning Bill, the House of Lords defeated the Government on the zero carbon homes amendment.

Old Church

New Swan Homes (NSH) has sought a regeneration project to rescue the former Old Church Hospital site in Romford, Essex. The project sought to revive and modernise the town centre as well as providing low carbon and energy efficient homes through the use of Wetherby’s Epsitec system.

NSH’s development comes after a decade of regeneration work in Romford town centre. The Old Church site was originally a workhouse for the union and was built in 1838; in 1930 the poor law union was abolished and it became the Old Church County Hospital. This was later closed in 2006
