Urban Splash to deliver 81 modular council homes in Northstowe

Homes England and Urban Splash have chosen South Cambridgeshire District Council to provide 81 affordable rent properties in Northstowe.

All 81 homes will be either one- or two-bed and built using modern methods of construction, involving prefabrication and off-site assembly.

Some 60 of these homes will be specifically designed for residents aged over 55.

The apartments will form part of Urban Splash’s 406-home development in Northstowe.

Nathan Cornish, director at Urban Splash, added: “It is our ambition to make modular housing more widely available and accessible to a range of occupiers; we are delighted, therefore, [to] be working with our long-term partners Homes England — as well as our new partners at South Cambridgeshire District Council — to make this happen at Northstowe.”

This is part of Homes England’s long-term project to deliver 8,500 new homes in Northstowe by 2040.

Paul Kitson, director for markets, partners and place at Homes England, added: “The choice of MMC [modern methods of construction] homes for our first neighbourhood at the new town will greatly increase the pace of delivery and offer residents greater energy efficiency.”
