New build homes built to current regulations could see purchasers save up to 57%, or £1,400 a year, on gas and electricity costs as opposed to running an “upgraded” Victorian property according to analysis by the National House-Building Council (NHBC) and Zero Carbon Hub.

Buyers looking for a great new home, should look at the excellent properties available at Blossom Park being built by Bellway Homes in Hoo St Werburgh. Perfect for a wide range of buyers, including first time buyers, families and people wishing to downsize.
