Low carbon community launched in Dunbar
May 4 2020
A proposal of application notice has been filed with East Lothian Council to build a low-carbon community in Dunbar, centred on the recently unveiled ‘DunBear’ sculpture.
DunBear Park is being brought forward by Halhill Developments who intend to build a mixed-use scheme comprising drive through retail, a nursery and care home in addition to homes and offices.
An innovation centre catering for start-up businesses and 100 low carbon affordable homes will also be built on the 54.3-acre site.
Since 1999 Halhill has seen 1,524 homes built or under construction with a pledge to use on-site renewable heat and power for future homes.
Ken Ross of Hallhill Developments said: “We are delighted to be bringing forward proposals for our low carbon community, which we are aiming to be an exemplar development, adopting the latest low carbon technology
“DunBear Park will assist in creating jobs and delivering housing for key workers, who have played such vital role during COVID-19. It will also assist in the supporting the construction-led recovery from the current crisis.”
A web based public consultation will take place on Wednesday 3 June between 1700 and 2000.
Love the wee key worker-COVID PR bandwagon link too....like Hallhill are really 'doing their bit' for humanity.
