New £18m fund to speed up house building




Housing Minister Gavin Barwell has announced a new £18million fund to accelerate house building in order to provide thousands of new homes where people will want to live.


From 11 November 2016 councils are able to bid for a share of the ‘capacity fund’ which is created to tackle planning issues that can cause delays and prevent builders from getting on site and starting work quickly.


The £18million will help accelerate delivery of up to 800,000 homes and infrastructure across large brownfield sites in England.
