Homes for our Future: Greater Cambridge Housing Strategy 2019-2023


Tell us what the housing issues are for Cambridge City and South Cambridgeshire, and what needs to be done to tackle them.

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

In light of this, Cambridge City and South Cambridgeshire District Councils have come together to develop a Housing Strategy for the Greater Cambridge area, and we need your help.

We are seeking the views of people who:

·       Live in Greater Cambridge
·       Work in Greater Cambridge, or
·       Work for organisations or businesses operating in Greater Cambridge

Chance to win a £50 high street gift voucher, or donation to the charity of your choice.[1]
We also want to get the views of others 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
