Marleigh: initial social sustainability assessment

This report describes a first social sustainability assessment for the Marleigh development to the east of Cambridge city centre. Social Life was commissioned to carry out this work as part of Locality’s wider community building activities for South Cambridgeshire District Council.

We plan to carry out a series of social sustainability assessments to capture over time how Marleigh is evolving into a new community that supports people to thrive, both individually and collectively. If the Marleigh community is to succeed, it will need to knit into the surrounding area, including the communities that are the immediate neighbours to the site.
