North Ayrshire council has created two unique ‘Sustainable Demonstrator Homes’ at the Dickson Drive development which showcase the latest design and technology. These homes also set a benchmark for building sustainable properties at a local and national level, meeting the highest sustainability ratings. This is all part of the council’s commitment to climate change and follows on from an earlier cabinet decision to declare a climate emergency. Many of the features – such as triple glazing, solar panels and smart lighting – help reduce running costs, meaning residents can make significant savings on their bills, while also having a positive effect on the environment by reducing carbon emissions.
