Mill Road (Phase 1)


Forming part of a city wide new-build, affordable housing programme, the former Council Depot on Mill Road is the largest site so far to be delivered by Cambridge Investment Partnerships - a joint venture between the Cambridge City Council and Hill Group.

The initial design, by Allies and Morrison Architects, achieved a planning consent in June 2018. Rock Townsend is appointed to deliver the 186 homes from Stage 4 onwards.

With no visible distinction in tenure, half of the homes are to be rented council homes and the other half being for private sale. The homes range from terraced mews style houses to apartment blocks; from single bedroom flats up to four bedroom houses.

Also included in the proposal is a basement carpark, small commercial space, new play area for children, sustainable drainage systems and good connections and integration with the city’s cycle network.
