Background Information: At the Strategy and Resources meeting 19th March 2018 approval was given by the Executive Councillor for the purchase of the former Ridgeons site at Cromwell Road, Cambridge. Completion of the purchase took place in June 2018. The site has the benefit of an outline planning consent. The rationale for the purchase of the site was to support the delivery of affordable housing through the funded devolution programme to meet local need. The approved delivery route is through the Cambridge Investment Partnership (CIP).
