Consultation on the Greater Cambridge Housing Strategy 2024-2029

We are consulting on the Greater Cambridge Housing Strategy 2024-2029 which sets out our vision, objectives and priorities for both new and existing homes of all tenures over the next 5 years for both South Cambridgeshire District Council and Cambridge City Council.

The Strategy aims to:

  • Update and replace the Greater Cambridge Housing Strategy 2019 to 2023.
  • Set out our strategic direction and priorities in relation to new and existing homes and communities.
  • Demonstrate the councils’ shared priorities; as well as where priorities differ between the two.
  • Outline what we aim to achieve going forward; this will form the basis of a more detailed annual action plan.
