Cala at Waterbeach Community Pledge

We are committed to bringing added value and meaningful benefit to the communities in which we build, not just through the homes we create, but by investing and enhancing in the very essence of what brings a local community together.

Our Pledges bring together a host of bespoke measures for each local community including activities, donations, initiatives, volunteering drives and much more.

Our commitments to the Waterbeach community

See below what we have provided in the local community...

Land to Life

Land To Life is a curriculum-based schools project aimed at 7-11 year olds. The comprehensive suite of teachers’ notes and detailed lesson plans aims to educate children on how new communities are created, from land acquisition through to sales and marketing.

Showhome of Support

Welcome to Waterbeach's Showhome of Support


At Cala, we are passionate about building communities, not just homes. Our showhomes in Cambridgeshire will not only give you a glimpse into the Cala lifestyle, it will also showcase the small businesses, rising stars, local talent and the new community we are now part of.

We want to spotlight Cambridgeshire's local businesses in our showhomes. From artwork and accessories to furniture and fabrics, we aim to bring a real unique flavour of what this town has to offer.
