Satellite Architects has been given the green light for an assisted self-build project for three family homes in Bridport, west Dorset.

Contractor ISG Pearce will build each house to watertight stage, after which the owners will be able to complete the building to their own specifications.

Each home is designed to reduce carbon emissions by up to 50% compared to the current Building Regulations and will feature green components including a timber frame structure, triple glazing and solar thermal domestic hot water.

The dwellings form part of a larger 57-home mixed-tenure affordable housing scheme for Magna Housing Association.
