Housing


Sector: Housing


The National Infrastructure Commission’s (NIC) central finding is that a lack of sufficient and suitable housing presents a fundamental risk to the success of this area.

Oxford and Cambridge are two of the country’s least affordable housing markets. The NIC recognises the crucial importance of linking infrastructure to housing and commercial development in order to further realise the Corridor’s economic growth potential.

Ambitious housing growth plans are being set by the LEPs and Local Authorities across the Corridor with approximately 235,000 new dwellings to be delivered in the short to medium term future which will need careful planning and much consultation.

A number of strategic housing developments are planned along the proposed new rail and road networks, facilitating east-west commuting in both directions along the rail line or along the express way. New developments include the expansion of Cambourne and Bourn airfield in Cambridgeshire, urban extensions to Bedford and Milton Keynes, the towns along the A34 Corridor in Oxfordshire and Bicester Garden City.
