CSaP Impact Hunting
The aim of the research is to identify examples of impact resulting from the meetings between academics and Policy Fellows. This will provide a narrative about the ability of the University of Cambridge's Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP) to generate impact, which may be useful input for the University’s environment statement.
Creating positive economic communities
Funded by The Local Trust, Prof Pete Tyler and Dr Gemma Burgess will lead a team of researchers in reviewing how positive economic change might be sustainably created in communities with a population of 5,000 to 15,000, where there is sufficient local involvement and adequate long term support.
Construction Innovation Hub
Dr Gemma Burgess, Acting Director of CCHPR, is a Co-Investigator on the £72m Construction Innovation Hub, a partnership between the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB), the Building Research Establishment (BRE), and the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC).
Wylfa Newydd Housing Study
The Wylfa Newydd Housing Study (Stage 1), commissioned by the Isle of Anglesey County Council and undertaken by CCHPR, reviewed Horizon Nuclear Power’s Construction Worker Accommodation Strategy. It identified the key issues and impacts of the proposed development, and outlined the measures required to alleviate impacts, on the local housing market. The purpose of the second stage of the study is to further define and justify the mitigation measures required, and to provide the required evidence, to underpin the ‘Housing Fund’ in the s106 Agreement in order to ensure that the Isle of Anglesey County Council has a robust and credible evidence base leading into the Development Consent Order (DCO) investigation.
Leasehold and Freehold Charges
This research, funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), will examine the issues of the levels of leasehold and freehold charges being charged, and the variation within these, in order to inform the development of the Ministry's leasehold reform policy and future programme.
Digital Nomads
The aim of this research, funded by the Centre for Digital Built Britain, is to understand how digital technology is being used to enable new forms of shared living in the private rented sector. With a focus on the use of digital technology in shared rented accommodation, the research will investigate the application of digital technology in three areas: access to properties, management of properties and lived experience.
