Full list: 14 major housing schemes set for funding

Aaron Morby 9 years ago

Major schemes at 14 sites have been earmarked for government investment, so they can start building up to 38,000 new homes.

Housing Minister Mark Prisk today named the projects set to gain a share of the Local Infrastructure Fund, which has a total budget of £474m.

The Homes and Communities Agency funding programme for large-scale planned sites is being targeted at schemes of over 1,500 homes that could deliver real benefits to their communities, but are struggling to move forward.

HCA staff will now commence due diligence with the shortlisted bidders to determine the final investment and numbers of homes being supported.

Prisk said: “This government is determined to get Britain building again. That’s why we are working with local housing schemes that have their plans in place, but need help to move forward.

“Our support through the Local Infrastructure Fund will help deliver the homes this country needs, create thousands of jobs and inject millions of pounds of investment into local economies.”

Support for these housing schemes will build on the deals made to unlock over 42,000 homes through the large sites programme, at Sherford near Plymouth, Cranbrook near Exeter, Fairfield near Milton Keynes and Wokingham.
