Rural Development

Pioneering sustainable living and rural housing for the UK's green agenda.

Rural Development

About the solution

We believe that solely directing investments towards areas with the highest need can inadvertently neglect rural regions with more dispersed populations, leading to disadvantages and gradual decline.

Our vision for a localised approach revolves around community engagement and collaborative partnerships between such entities as DEFRA, farmers and the Canals & Rivers Trust. By comprehending the specific requirements of rural areas, we can truly understand the essence of rural communities - their demographics, access to employment, infrastructure, and essential services. Equally important, we must recognise that rural communities form a bedrock for the UK's cultural landscape. 

At Zengiva, we are committed to addressing the distinctive challenges faced by rural regions and working hand in hand with local communities to foster prosperous, thriving, and resilient landscapes across the UK.

We believe many UK citizens are passionate about sustainability and the environment. The dream of living harmoniously with nature while contributing to the UK's 'green' agenda requires innovative solutions that combine eco-friendly living with rural housing to bring about local and regional transformations for a greener future.

Zengiva recognises the pressing need to address the challenges of climate change and urbanisation. Our houseboats present a unique opportunity to embrace sustainable living without compromising on comfort or convenience. By adopting an environmentally conscious approach, we have committed to providing a practical solution to some of the most pressing issues facing the UK today.
