Architype: Agar Grove project summary

Passivhaus is the world-leading standard for housing that has no cold drafts, needs minimal heating, and provides year-round comfort. There is a similar standard for housing refurbishment as well. It is encouraging to see that the Council is willing to undertake these kinds of projects to improve the housing stock in the Borough.

Resource for people with a disability

Having a disability can be very frustrating and isolating. So if you need support, it is important to make use of help that is available.

One dedicated group is Disability Rights UK.

‘We are disabled people leading change, working for equal participation for all.’

They help by providing support for independent living, support to get work and improve skills, and aim to influence public attitudes and behaviours.
