Palace Green Homes & East Cambs District Council

  • Palace Green Homes was set up in 2016, as the development arm of East Cambridgeshire District Council’s Local Authority Trading Company. This step was taken to address the “final” barrier in successful community led development: finding a development partner with sufficient understanding, skill and motivation to take part in joint community developments. There is a large amount of experience and expertise on CLTs and CLT development within the company and although this is not the company’s only area of activity it is a significant element of its business
  • “At Palace Green Homes, we firmly believe that involving local people in the design of local developments can bring real social and economic benefits to local communities. This ‘community-led’ development gives residents the chance to shape their neighbourhood. It can strengthen the sense of belonging and encourage friendly, thriving communities where people aspire to live. By working in partnership with local Community Land Trusts, we build local support for new development where previously there was none, and develop community-owned assets, such as genuinely affordable homes, that have significant income streams that can be reinvested back into the local community for generations to come, making communities more resilient, and more able to adapt to change" Phil Rose, Head of Property & Development
