We own a growing stock of homes in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Northamptonshire that allow us to offer competitive market rents, as well as security and comfort of long term tenancies if you need it, but we are happy to put contracts in place that match your needs.

We are an independent limited company, but wholly owned by the Council. The income generated by the business activity provides an income stream to the council to provide and protect valuable services.
