The 'eco-housing' aims to address Egan compliance issues as a low energy development with mono pitched grass roofs, timber and tile cladding, condensing boilers and the use of high-level insulation combined with maximum benefit from solar gain to contribute to reduction in energy consumption. The development is in line with local and national policies in the regeneration of a brown field site, which enhances the area and provides affordable housing with good access to transport and local facilities and was the recipient of a 2002 Housing Design Award.

The site is a long thin 110mtr backland strip within the conservation area of the Watling Estate. The project arose out of lobbying by local residents, councillors and the police for a long term redevelopment solution to vandalism, fly tipping & general degeneration.
The new development replaces forty five vandalised garages with 8 No. low rise two and three bedroom houses.
