Delivering for the community at Akeman Street

Work has been progressing well since work started on site at Akeman Street towards the end of last year. We have recently seen the demolition of  the existing older building to allow us to develop the wider site and provide much needed brand new council rented homes.

When completed, 14 brand new council rented homes will be available; consisting of eight flats and six maisonettes as well as three new retail units and a brand-new community centre. We appreciate how important the community centre is to the residents so have arranged for this to be re-located to  39 Akeman Street, whilst the works continue, ensuring that the busy centre can continue its popular activities.

Claire Flowers, Head of Housing Development Agency for Cambridge City Council and CIP Investment Team member said,

“The redevelopment of Akeman Street will further add to the supply of new council homes in the city to better meet residents’ needs and will also provide an improved, modern, more generous community centre for everyone to use and enjoy.”

Tom Hill, Regional Director of Cambridge Investment Partnership comments,

“It is wonderful to see the community at Akeman Street continuing to enjoy their many groups in the temporary centre we have created and look forward to welcoming them all into the new centre when it is completed.”
