Cambridge sub-Regional Housing Board (CRHB)

CRHB meetings

The housing board's priorities are outlined on this page and you can find terms of reference here. Meetings are usually held on the first Friday of each month, from 9.30am to 12.30pm in Cambourne.

You can find CRHB's 2017 meeting planner setting out meeting dates for CRHB and other groups throughout the year here. It's still draft with further dates to be added, but will hopefully help avoid some meeting clashes.
