Cambridge City Council Affordable Housing

Cambridge City Council

Saunders Boston and Keepmoat Homes were jointly awarded this prestigious four year contract to develop City Council owned sites to provide affordable homes enabled by the open market sale of 40% of the total number of plots on each site.

The overall programme provides circa 250 dwellings across a number of sites ranging in size from 8 dwellings to over 50 dwellings. 60% of the overall dwellings are Affordable. These properties have been built by Keepmoat Homes but will be retained and managed by Cambridge City Council.

The remaining dwellings will be sold on the open market. Keepmoat Homes have constructed these homes and were fully responsible for the sales risk. Receipts from the sale of these units have been used to cross-subsidise the development.

Accommodation includes houses and apartments as well as some community buildings. Building typologies include single bedroom units up to large family houses as well as specialist accommodation for over 55’s and wheelchair users.

All the developments are on brown field sites owned by Cambridge City Council, ranging from small garage sites to large parcels of land on existing council owned estates.
