As well as visiting the recently completed Sanctuary Housing developments 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 also saw one of the Sanctuary community investment funded projects in the area, Wilburton Play Park.

The committee is made up of 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.
