Enhancing the Cityscape at Ventress Close to deliver brand new council homes

As part of our pledge to deliver at least 500 brand new council homes by March 2022, work commenced at the end of last year on our Ventress Close project.

Through innovative planning and designs, we are making better use of space to enhance the cityscape and increase the number of new council homes available for local residents.

The site is located in the central area of Queen Edith’s Ward and includes the demolition of four maisonettes and construction of 15 brand new energy efficient homes, featuring 12, one and two bedroom flats and three, three bedroom homes with designated parking and landscaping.

Sustainability is key and these new homes will all have photovoltaic solar panels and sustainable drainage that will reduce carbon emissions by 19%.

Claire Flowers, Head of Housing Development Agency and CIP Investment Team Member comments,

“We are committed to developing a mixed portfolio of sites and Ventress Close is an example of where we are making better use of space to enhance the surrounding area and providing much needed brand new council homes for local residents.”

Tom Hill, Regional Director at Cambridge Investment Partnership said:

“As a partnership we are committed to creating much needed affordable new homes for local residents across the City which are energy efficient and fit for the future.”
