Planning for Passivhaus

Pentan has successfully achieved planning permission for Wales’s largest Passivhaus residential scheme, a development of 42 new dwellings in the Heath, Cardiff. The scheme will consist of 12 houses and 30 apartments (including 10 affordable apartments for Cardiff Council), which will be built to achieve Passivhaus certification. The scheme is the final phase 1 project of Cardiff Living, a partnership to build 1500 mixed tenure, energy efficient, sustainable and high quality homes across sites in the city.
