Our plans

John Huntingdon’s Charity continues to support local people through its range of services including advice and grants which will evolve to meet our community’s changing needs.

We also recognise there is a particular demand nationally for more safe, affordable and attractive housing; we are in an almost unique position locally of having land that could be made available to help provide new homes.

Not only would this enable JHC to meet its charitable remit to provide housing for the benefit of those who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress who live, work and study in the Parish of Sawston and elsewhere locally.

It would also help the village to attract new residents, including young families keen to get involved with local life, bringing with them fresh ideas whilst they contribute to the local economy.

We are confident that any future new developments, of whatever scale, built locally in response to South Cambridgeshire District Council’s Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) will bring wider benefits and opportunities for Sawston.

Our village is in a unique position to grow intelligently and creatively and JHC is well-placed to help ensure Sawston continues to thrive and evolve.
