The new homes at Colville Road will provide 100% affordable housing in the form of Council rented accommodation. There is a clear aspiration to deliver homes for people living and working in Cambridge, the proposed housing mix meets the identified need.

The proposed development will see the comprehensive redevelopment of existing 3 storey flats at 66 – 80b Colville Road, which will be demolished and replaced with 69 new affordable homes. The existing buildings will be replaced by high quality, energy-efficient and wheelchair accessible homes meeting the latest standards.

The scheme will include facilities for vehicle and cycle parking and the new development will benefit from additional planting as part of a landscaping scheme.
