New £18m Fund To Accelerate House Building

A new £18m fund to speed up house building on large sites and that will provide thousands of new homes where people want to live, has been announced by the Housing Minister Gavin Barwell. From today councils can bid for a share of the ‘capacity fund’ to tackle planning issues that can cause delay and prevent builders from getting on site and starting work quickly. The money will help accelerate delivery of up to 800,000 homes and infrastructure across large sites in England and is part of a wider package of measures to increase the number of much needed homes in local areas.
