It’s exactly what it says on the tin. It busts myths, and on this particular occasion it was about the myths surrounding affordable housing, particularly as it relates to scale, design and quality.
As part of the Support Cambridgeshire peer network offer, the tour was held on the 3rd July 2018, with a fully booked coach tour departing from Warboys on a tour of 7 Rural Exception Sites along the Huntingdonshire and South Cambridgeshire border.
24 local council delegates attended, together with representatives from 6 Housing associations who sit on the Cambridgeshire Rural Affordable Housing Partnership. Support Cambridgeshire partners Cambridgeshire ACRE were in attendance. The event achieved a satisfaction rating of 4.7 out of 5.
Excellent feedback was obtained, some of which are provided:
- Educational – definitely silenced some of the myths.
- Interesting and very surprised at the spaciousness of the small development I saw.
- An eye opener on what can be achieved. Myths were busted.
- All members with involvement in planning should catch the next one.
