Ten new three-bedroomed houses in Bovemoors Lane are the latest addition to the City Council’s homes, built to the highest standards of energy efficiency.
Named Ernest Johns Mews after a Devon First World War hero born in the same road, the homes were built to Passivhaus standards, meaning ultra-low energy consumption for heating and air cooling, keeping bills down and the properties nice and cosy.
The Labour Led Council is very proud to have built these fabulous energy efficient new houses, and also to have named the new road where they are situated after a Wonford veteran who served in the Devonshire regiment and was awarded a Military Medal for gallantry at the battle of the Somme in 1918.

Super Energy Efficient as Standard
By constructing homes to these high standards the Exeter Labour Party ensure our residents face lower fuel bills, live in houses that minimise their impact on the environment and are built of high quality materials made to last. Our vision is that as we continue to build super energy efficient homes to such high standards we will encourage others to join in building homes fit for the future.
Reducing fuel poverty, reducing the City’s carbon footprint, caring for the environment and creating quality homes for Exeter residents are all key aims for the Exeter Labour Party. We fully intend to continue building new super energy efficient homes with 500 more planned to be built in the next few years.
We led the Council to build the first super energy efficient council houses in 2010 and have been doing it ever since including larger buildings such as Knights Place, Chester Long Court and the Edwards Court, which will be the first Passivhaus standard independent living facility in the country.
We are again leading the way with the new St Sidwells Point Leisure Centre which will once again be the first of its kind built to the Passivhaus, super energy efficient standards.
