Crawley Homes joins the NetZero Collective

Crawley Homes is the landlord division of Crawley Borough Council, managing and maintaining approximately 8,000 homes in the South East of England.

Crawley Homes aims to not only reach net zero before 2050, but to develop the correct solutions for each home dependant on its property type. This will result in lower energy bills for their tenants, to prevent fuel poverty and provide higher quality warm, well ventilated homes creating a positive environment where people want to live.

Crawley Homes is committing ten different properties to the programme with NetZero Collective. The ten homes will reflect different property types, of varying age and build, allowing us to explore the range of options for each.

Crawley Homes’ stock is a mixture of flats and houses built between 1915 and the current day, many of them built to create Crawley New Town. A new build programme continues and has included Passivhaus homes as well as more traditionally built properties.

Crawley Homes have previously carried out low carbon retrofit works including gas boiler upgrades, solar thermal panels for hot water, photovoltaic panels, air source heat pumps, loft and external wall insulation and there is even a water source heat system, all of which produce better energy efficient homes.
