New council homes in South Cambridgeshire

New council homes in South Cambridgeshire

We are committed to building new homes for Council tenants that are truly affordable to live in. On this page you can find information about where our new homes have been or are being built across a number of developments around the district. 

Some of the new homes will be available as affordable rent properties. Once they are complete, you will be to register your interest in these homes via Homelink.

The rest of the new homes will be available through a shared ownership scheme. Even before these homes are complete, they will be advertised privately. Details of whom to contact will be on the development site signboards, alternatively, please email for further information.

All of our new homes are built to high specifications and are energy efficient with double glazed windows. Some homes also have solar panels or are powered by air source heat pumps.

Potential tenants or buyers who have a local connection will be prioritised for all of our new build homes.
