Members of East Cambridgeshire Committee were invited to take a look at Sanctuary Group developments as they took a tour around the local area.

The annual excursion was arranged to give members of the committee an opportunity to take a closer look at housing developments they are helping to oversee.

As well as visiting the recently completed homes in Sheriffs Court, Burrough Green and Sheriffs Gardens in Lynn Road, the tour stopped at a construction site in Northumbria Close, where homes are planned to be completed in the autumn.

Members were also able to see one of the Sanctuary community investment funded projects in the area, Wilburton Play Park.

Committee members meet quarterly and monitor the provision of landlord services for Sanctuary Housing residents in the East Cambridgeshire area. The committee comprises councillors from East Cambridgeshire District Council, independent members and residents from the district.

Tracey Spencer, Sanctuary Housing operations manager for the East, said: “It was fantastic to show committee members the range and quality of new affordable homes for rent and shared ownership that Sanctuary is building in East Cambridgeshire.

“The opportunity for members to meet and talk to residents who recently moved into their new homes showed the difference high quality affordable housing is making to the lives of people in the district.”

Cllr Chris Morris from East Cambridgeshire District Council and chair of the committee who joined the tour, said: “On behalf of the Council I would like to congratulate Sanctuary for its continued investment in the District.

“We work in close partnership to deliver new affordable homes from land acquisition, design and planning, all the way through to construction. So today it was great to see the end product and meet residents who were clearly delighted with their new homes."
