Save the date for the next PII study trip which will be taking place on 15 and 16 May to Cambridge.
Cambridge has been the fastest growing city in Europe for nearly every year in the past 30. Housing growth is extraordinary with 73,000 homes planned around a city that had less than 40,000 homes. It is achieving this through integrated planning of new transport links and compact higher density housing. The latter requires innovative 2 and 3 storey house types because most of Cambridge’s population don’t want to live in apartment buildings.
Homes England, UK Government’s delivery agency for new homes, will also be meeting us to discuss their housebuilding delivery strategy, plus their role in Cambridge’s growth(the agency has just unveiled the UK’s largest factory-built housing scheme since the 1960s)
