Homes for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

Hastoe joins with 14 other housing associations and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CA to deliver 40,000 new homes.

 

Hastoe have teamed up with 14 other housing associations and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority to build 40,000 new homes over the next 20 years.

The new project, called Homes for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, will use £170m of Government grant to build a mix of homes for open market sale and affordable rent. This represents a total investment of around £4bn.

A prospectus has been launched for the project, which you can read here. The prospectus includes a case study of Hastoe’s development in Horseheath (South Cambs) of four homes for affordable rent – two of which were built to Passivhaus standard.

Hastoe Chief Executive, Sue Chalkley, said:

“It’s fantastic we’ve got so many housing associations working together to provide the new homes that Cambridgeshire and Peterborough badly needs. Housing Associations have a different model to private developers and care about leaving a lasting legacy in the communities they build.”

“It’s vital these new homes are well-designed and built to high energy efficiency standards. That way, we can increase public support for new homes in their local area.”
