Greater Cambridge Housing Strategy consultation

Open from 18 December 2018 to 25 January 2019.

We know from talking to local residents, employers and other organisations that housing issues are a real concern locally, whether it be around supporting the economy, or meeting the housing needs of individuals.

In light of this, we and South Cambridgeshire District Council have developed a joint housing strategy for the Greater Cambridge area, and we need your help.

The strategy includes:

  • An introduction – what the strategy is about
  • A high-level vision statement – what we are trying to achieve
  • The context within which the strategy has been developed

It then goes on to show the councils’ key priorities under three main objectives:

  • Building the right homes that people need and can afford to live in
  • Enabling people to live settled lives
  • Building strong partnerships

There are also some additional annexes giving more detail in some areas. An action plan will follow when the consultation is complete.

Consultation information:

We are seeking your views on what we want to achieve, and on how we can work with others to do so.

Greater Cambridge Housing Strategy consultation: Online survey

We want to hear from you if you live or work in Greater Cambridge, or work for organisations or businesses that operate in Greater Cambridge. We also want to get the views of people with an interest in housing issues locally, including:

  • housing developers
  • registered providers
  • local employers
  • public sector organisations operating in the area
  • landlords
  • parish councils
  • voluntary sector organisations
  • other partners who work with, or have an interest in working with the two councils

The consultation closes on 25 January 2019. Contact gchs@scambs.gov.uk if you have any questions about the strategy or survey.

A printable version of the survey is available on request.

Individuals responding to our survey have the chance to win a £50 high street gift voucher or a donation to the charity of your choice.

Next steps

The results of the consultation will be used to review our draft strategy. The strategy will then need to be formally approved through both councils’ formal decision making processes (planned for March or April 2019) before it can be adopted.

Details of how the consultation has been used to shape the final strategy will be published on both councils’ websites.
