Cambridge Investment Partnership (CIP), established in January 2017, is an equal partnership between Cambridge City Council and Hill Investment Partnerships. It will support the council in the delivery of 500 new affordable homes across the City by developing council-owned land and other sites. The CIP model allows the joint investment of land, funding and professional expertise in housing and mixed-use development. Cambridge City Council is focusing on opportunities to deliver council-owned and managed houses on existing land assets. CIP is drawing on the expertise and skills of both partners to bring forward planning applications and the construction of the new homes within the locations identified.
