New affordable homes plan for former motel in Stilton

Funding for 10 new affordable homes in the village of Stilton could be approved next week.

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority‘s Housing and Communities Committee will decide whether to approve the funding for the homes at the former motel site in 16 North Street at its meeting on Monday.

The mayoral authority received £170 million from the Government in 2017 to deliver 2,500 affordable homes across the area, of which £70 million (500 homes) is ringfenced for Cambridge.

A £420,000 grant from the combined authority’s Affordable Housing programme would deliver five affordable rent and five shared ownership units to be managed by housing association Cross Keys Homes.

A full planning application has already been submitted to Huntingdonshire District Council following a “positive pre-application submission,” the combined authority said.
