“We are encouraged by Housing Minister Gavin Barwell’s announcement of an £18 million ‘capacity fund’ to help local authorities tackle planning issues that hold up urgently needed homes from being built on public land. There is a real opportunity here for councils and housing associations to work together to ensure that these developments provide the right mix of affordable homes to meet local needs. This includes homes for low-cost, shared ownership and other tenures. We also hope that splitting up these large chunks of land into smaller development sites will open up the market to smaller, regional developers and their suppliers, creating local jobs for local people.”
Nicholas Harris, Chief Executive Designate, Stonewater
