Cambridge Ahead Response to the Cambridge City Council Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Consultation
In our response we focus on the role that modular housing can play in tackling homelessness and rough sleeping and welcome the approach that the Council has taken in making best use of spare land for this purpose.
Moving forward we encourage the Council to:
- Mainstream this approach and the use of modular to establish a pipeline of units so that they can truly address the scale of the challenge in the city.
- Establish a clear understanding around planning policy on each areas requirement for modular meanwhile housing.
- Lead a collaborative approach across the wider Cambridge area so that the role of modular in tackling homelessness is established, well understood and standardised across the region.
