CKH secured £525,000 in funding from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority and a £206,000 grant from Homes England, to support the development of 22 affordable homes on the site on Station Road.
Azhar Ahmed, Senior Development Manager at Cross Keys Homes, said: “The current shortage of affordable homes doesn’t just affect larger towns and cities, it’s impacting on smaller, rural communities too.
“We’re working with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority and Local Authorities in locations around the county to provide new homes in the places that need them most, like Willingham.”
Working with respected contractor Lindum Homes, we will provide 15 homes available for affordable rent with a further 7 homes available for shared ownership. Due for completion in spring 2019, the homes will be allocated as a priority to people with a local connection to the area.
Mayor James Palmer of the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, said: “The Combined Authority was tasked with accelerating house building rates and that includes the delivery of much needed affordable homes like this scheme in South Cambridgeshire.
“It is very positive to see developments ready to break ground which were backed by the Combined Authority Board less than 12 months ago. Many more new and innovative housing projects such as Community Land Trusts are in the pipeline as momentum builds to deliver 2,000 affordable home starts by March 2022 across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.”
