Low cost, low impact homes
Granton Waterfront will deliver around 3,500 net zero carbon homes. The health and wellbeing of the people who will live in them is a priority.
We’ll build as many affordable homes as possible with a mix of housing models – 75% being car free. By doing so, we’ll unlock contaminated land and address inequalities and current needs.
By building in energy efficiency across the lifecycle of homes, we’ll create a low-carbon community which will reduce fuel bills and running costs. We estimate that households will save £12 million over 30 years by reducing fuel bills. This will also help Edinburgh to achieve local and national targets for carbon reduction.
