Meet and greet for soon to be residents at new eco town development
A2Dominion held its first ‘welcome to your home’ event for soon to be residents in Elmsbrook, at the end of April. Elmsbrook is the first phase of a pioneering new eco-town development at NW Bicester, Oxfordshire.
The event offered residents the opportunity to talk to local service providers, receive practical guidance about their new homes and access sustainable travel initiatives.
Representatives from A2Dominion were on hand to tell residents more about the energy efficient and sustainable features of their new home and how they can get the best from them. Local service providers, SSE Energy and Grayline bus company, outlined how their services could support residents.
Highlighting sustainable travel options, energy saving vehicle specialist Drive Electric and BMW North Oxford, offered pre-booked test drives in a range of electric vehicles. Attendees also benefited from exclusive offers, including a two year discount on an electric car and six weeks free bus travel on the bespoke Elmsbrook service.
In addition, the soon to be residents had the opportunity to meet with different community partners, including the Oxford Youth art project, centre for reuse and skills Bicester Green, and Bicester Emmanuel Church.
Residents found out how they could get involved in partner initiatives, as well as the A2Dominion community-led management group.
Commenting on the day’s event, Dawn Wightman, Group Housing Director at A2Dominion, said:
“We are really excited to be welcoming our first residents to Elmsbrook. We recognise the importance and value of delivering events like this across all new build schemes ahead of occupation.”
“The day was a great success— residents took the opportunity to ask lots of questions about their new homes and learned about the other exciting plans we’re implementing with local partners to build a truly vibrant and sustainable community”.
First residents will be moving into their new homes at Elmsbrook over the coming weeks.
