United Living Group has announced a £22.9m contract award to redevelop the Wisbech Road scheme in Cambridgeshire, secured through the Company’s division United Living New Homes

The Wisbech Road scheme comprises 76 affordable rent and 42 shared ownership homes, including 2-4 bedroom houses which will be carried out by United Living New Homes subsidiary, Partner Construction.

The development is part of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority’s and Fenland District Council’s plans to regenerate March, by making local housing more accessible, improving transport links, and redesigning public spaces.

The investment is part of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s Devolution Deal, granted by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, and will see the government invest £20m a year – over 30 years – through the CPSIF fund.

The Wisbech Road redevelopment will prioritise sustainability

The Wisbech Road redevelopment will prioritise sustainability through integrating the Company’s ‘fabric first’ initiative.

The fabric first approach will allow for the development of affordable homes that are both energy efficient and have a lower carbon footprint.

‘Building future-proof family homes that will benefit the community and local area’

Frank Lincoln, regional managing director, Partner Construction, commented: “We are excited to work in partnership with Sage Housing to provide the community of Wisbech with sustainably built, high-quality affordable housing.

“With investment from the Combined Authority, we can work together to build future-proof family homes that will benefit the community and local area.”

‘High-quality affordable homes in Wisbech Road’

Rizwan Khan, head of investment and partnerships at Sage, stated: “Everything Sage does is about helping more people to get an affordable home of their own, and we work closely with developers and councils to make this happen across the country.

“We look forward to another 118 families getting a brand new, high-quality affordable home in Wisbech Road thanks to Combined Authority funding and our partnership with them, Fenland District Council, United Living Group and Partner Construction.”
