I was really pleased to join Frances Wright, Head of Community Partnering at We are Town to see their award winning Marmalade Lane, Cambridge’s first developer led co-housing community.
The project has been awarded the Silver Jubilee Cup from the Royal Town Planning Institute for its innovative design, collaborative approach to planning and strength of community-led housing.
The development features 42 houses and apartments collaboratively planned by an integrated team including residents, architects and developers.
The beautiful terraced houses and apartments are set around shared gardens and a pedestrianised play street, and there is also a common house, which is used for socialising and cooking shared meals, should people wish to eat as a group. It was a fantastic visit and I wish all the residents a happy time in their new homes!
