Cambridge Investment Partnership has handed over new energy-efficient homes at Wulfstan Way, Cambridge, as part of its commitment to deliver more than 500 new council homes to the city by March 2022
Wulfstan Way, located in the Queen Edith’s Ward of the city, features two brand new two-bedroom council homes and one, three-bedroom council home, all with off-street parking.
Designed by Mole Architects, the homes are energy efficient and include a number of sustainable features including photovoltaic solar panels, reduced water consumption and a reduction in carbon emissions.
The site was identified as part of the Cambridge City Council’s strategy to use under-utilised parcels of land and has been built simultaneously with CIP’s other garage sites at Queen’s Meadow, Markham Close, Colville Garages and Gunhild Way.
Cambridge Investment Partnership is an equal partnership between Cambridge City Council and Hill Investment Partnerships.
A growing demand
Councillor Richard Johnson, executive councillor for housing for Cambridge City Council and CIP board member, said: “As demand for housing continues to grow across the city, our garage sites strategy is turning disused and neglected garage sites into much-needed council homes for local residents.
“We are delighted to officially mark the completion of this site and see three local families move into their brand-new homes.”
Tom Hill, regional director of Hill, added: “We have now delivered 66 brand new high-quality council homes across the city in the past six months and are delighted to see the positive reactions from local families who are moving into their new homes.”
