Call for more affordable homes

“Where is the affordable housing that was promised?” asks Lib Dem Christine Whelan on Barton Road in Ely.

East Cambs Council has so far reneged on the promise it made to build three affordable homes in order to get permission
to build nine townhouses on Barton Road, Ely.


The unpopular and damaging scheme has seen the expensive townhouses built but only two of the affordable homes. The third could be built elsewhere in Ely but so far the council has failed to produce any plans to do so. The Lib Dem team
continue to press the council to find out when and where the third home will be built.


“The Conservatives always seem to put homes that local people can actually afford at the bottom of their list of priorities,” said Christine Whelan.
