The desperate need for affordable housing in the Waikato has driven a local charitable trust to launch an ambitious development in the Waikato town of Cambridge.  

The Bridge Housing Trust, set up by The Brian Perry Charitable Trust, is to develop a brand new, 42-home community in Cambridge.

Peake Mews will offer affordable, architecturally designed housing in an innovative, vibrant, and connected community.

It's based on the Queenstown Lakes Community Housing Trust’s innovative leasehold model for progressive home ownership, with the first homes looking to be completed by May 2023.

Will Randell is the portfolio Manager for the Perry Group/Bridge housing Trust and he joined Kerre Woodham.
