Elba Park CSH

Following remediation of the former Lambton coke works near Sunderland, David Wilson Homes was licensed by the Homes and Communities Agency to commence construction of  new housing.

The scheme incorporated a high standard of environmental construction and is set in a 52ha Country Park. Penn Associates Ecology Ltd undertook the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) ecology assessment, advising David Wilson Homes on additional measures they could take to obtain ecology credits.
