A lesson in new homes; my talk at the University of Cambridge
We’ll soon be creating hundreds of new homes using modern methods of construction at Inholm, Northstowe in Cambridgeshire; this week, I’ve spent time onsite, walking through our plans with the team.
While I was in the area I was also invited to give a talk at the University of Cambridge, introducing delegates to Urban Splash and the way we do things. I talked through 26 years of creating award-winning places, our vision, and our design commitment.
It was also a great opportunity to talk in depth about the Northstowe development - where we’ll be creating lots of House by Urban Splash homes. It is our ambition to make modern homes like these more widely available and accessible to a range of occupiers in Cambridge; working with partners such as South Cambridgeshire District Council and Homes England means we can make this a reality.
It was nice to hear feedback on these plans on the night, including: “it’s so great to listen to those who have been leading the way for 26 years…”, with other attendees calling our proposals “inspiring” and “interesting”.
As ever, I concluded with the oath sworn by citizens of Athens; a promise to local people that we will leave the area “not less, but greater and more beautiful than it was left to us”.
