Ermine Street Housing – the road to home

At Ermine Street Housing we believe in putting our customers at the heart of everything we do.

We own a growing stock of homes in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Northamptonshire that allow us to offer the security and comfort of long term tenancies if you need it, but we are happy to put contracts in place that match your needs.

We pride ourselves on offering competitive market rents, transparency and no hidden costs in terms of fees and other charges, which we try to keep to a minimum to make sure we provide excellent value for money. For more details look at our rates in our offer.

Ermine Street Housing is the trading name for South Cambs Limited, the housing company set up by South Cambridgeshire District Council. We are an independent limited company, but wholly owned by the Council. The income generated by the business activity provides an income stream to the council to provide and protect valuable services.

In November 2015 the Council decided to expand the business and invest a further £100 million over the next 5 years, buying an additional 500 properties.
