£40 million investment in Cambridgeshire homes celebrated
A £40 million investment in housing for Cambridgeshire was celebrated at a special event in Cambridge this week. Representatives of the recently merged King Street Housing and Aldwyck Housing Group met with some influential figures in Cambridge to discuss their plans for building more new homes.
The five-year investment will see a range of homes built across the county to meet the needs of the local communities.
“As the former Chair of King Street Housing I was really pleased to oversee the merger with Aldwyck,” said Sara Garnham, Board member of Aldwyck Housing Group. “Our organisations are a natural fit. We have a similar heritage as well as aligned aims and values. We also share an ambition to develop more new homes in Cambridgeshire. We know our local communities are really feeling the impact of the shortage of good quality homes. Aldwyck’s ability to build great new homes coupled with King Street’s excellent local knowledge will ensure we deliver appropriately on this five-year investment plan.”
The event ‘The Future of Housing in Cambridgeshire – A celebration’ was held on Monday (25 June) at the Hilton Cambridge City Centre. The key note speech was given by James Tickell, Partner at leading consultancy firm Campbell Tickell. Guests also enjoyed a performance by local acapella group, The Gentlemen of St Johns.
