The CHL designed and constructed units have a wide range of features that set international benchmarks for Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) in affordable housing Famous for its cheese, the Bega township has another world-class product developed with substantial input from the local community.
The development, which is known as the Bega Eco Neighbourhood Development (BEND), is built on an environmentally sensitive sub-division adjacent to and above the river flats on the north edge of the Bega township. CHL has constructed ten dwellings along the north facing slope that has views over the river flats. The organisation had to comply with stringent development guidelines which include setbacks, car parking areas and services infrastructure.
In addition to being a highly energy and water efficient property, BEND also has a pedestrian route leading to the town centre, which is close enough to allow residents to walk to shops and other local services, minimising car use.
These are quality built, environmentally sustainable affordable homes that offer a wonderful new living environment to the tenants.
