More Support to Boost House Building

Further steps that will support the government’s comprehensive plans to build the homes the country needs were announced in the Spring Statement by the Chancellor.  Among the measures were:

£60 million investment has also been announced to boost the Housing Growth Partnership fund that supports small and medium sized house-builders enabling them to invest in housing projects and develop their businesses – so they can play their part in getting Britain building again.

Sir Oliver Letwin has also set out next steps of his independent review into the gap between planning permissions granted and homes completed.

These measures build on the major overhaul to the National Planning Policy Framework focused on increasing the supply of land, maintaining protections for the Green Belt and a greater emphasis on converting planning permissions into homes, launched last week by the Prime Minister
