With new regulations coming into force in 2019 stating that all new houses in EU countries must have an electric vehicle (EV) charging point, Annington Homes is already ahead of the game. At Southside Close in Uxbridge, the developer is providing two electric vehicle charging points for the eight homes at the private development. As electric vehicles are fast becoming the future of transport, the installations at Southside Close demonstrates a commitment to sustainable new homes and a better quality of life for residents.
The Government has stated that by 2050 nearly all cars and vans should be zero emission vehicles, and Greater London is currently leading the way in promoting this, providing 21.8%* of all electric vehicle chargers in the UK. There is an increasing demand for electric vehicles, particularly in this location, due to the many benefits they provide. The vehicles of the future are cheaper to insure, tax and run, and are far better for our health and the environment than other vehicles. There has been a steady increase in EV charging points monthly and it is predicted that there will be more EV charge points than petrol stations by 2020.*
Sally Parsons, Property Director at Annington, said: “Sustainability is one of our core corporate values at Annington and we now see providing car charging points as an essential part of building new homes for the future. We believe that all new developments should offer car charging points wherever possible, especially as electric and alternative energy cars are here to stay. Housebuilders can no longer ignore this future need for cleaner living and charging points.”
Southside Close, which offers the electric vehicle charging points, provides an appealing balance of suburban lifestyle with excellent transport links to central London. The stylish and contemporary collection of three and four-bedroom new build homes on Honeycroft Hill have prices starting from £595,000.
Annington is one of the largest private owners of residential property in the UK and has a long-term leaseholder agreement with the Ministry of Defence. The developers are increasingly moving into the new-build market with a particular focus on smaller developments, providing high-quality, affordable homes for a range of buyers.
Southside Close, which is proving popular with homebuyers, offers a convenient lifestyle in a sought-after and leafy location on Honeycroft Hill. All the homes in the gated, private development will be finished to a high specification and come with landscaped gardens and off-road parking. Other features at Southside Close include CAT 6 cabling and a pioneering intelligent living system which allows homebuyers to automatically control all of the settings within their home; from heating to lighting and security.
The development is just a short walk to Uxbridge station for the Metropolitan line and commuters can reach Baker Street in 39 minutes or Liverpool Street in 53 minutes. Southside Close boasts easy access to the A40 for day-trips to the Chiltern Hills or Oxford and Heathrow Airport is also just a short drive away.
