Up to 200,000 homes are set to get off the ground after the government allocated £866m to councils to support local housing projects today.

The Government is doling out the cash to more than 130 council-led civil engineering projects to make housing developments viable.

The funding is the first wave of cash allocations from the £5bn Housing Infrastructure Fund established to fix the broken housing market.

This is being channelled into delivering local infrastructure projects including roads, cycle paths, flood defences and land remediation work.

Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, said: “Today marks the first step of the multi-billion pound investment we announced at the Budget to help build the homes our country needs.

“This fund finances vital infrastructure such as roads, schools and bridges, which will kick-start housing development in some of Britain’s highest-demand areas.

“This support will help us meet our ambitious plan of building 300,000 new homes each year and ensure we have enough housing in areas which need it most.”

HIF projects from County Durham to Cornwall

 

  • £10m for highway infrastructure for Ashton Green housing site in Leicester, helping to unlock 3,300 homes
  • £10m for construction of a bypass in Botley, Hampshire, a critical road infrastructure project for 1,000 new homes
  • £3.6m for drainage works, new roads and footpaths at the Manor Cluster, south-east Sheffield for over 400 homes by 2025
  • £6.5m to help build a new primary school as part of the Ilfracombe Southern Extension in North Devon. This will help unlock 750 new homes.
