“The Housing Secretary’s announcement on more funding for the social housing sector today is good news for rural and 'new town' communities where there is a chronic and increasing shortage of homes for social rent which young families so desperately need.

Many of these are in Stonewater’s operating areas across the South, South West and South East and pockets of the Midlands. We also hope this investment will be supported by continuing planning reform so that these urgently-needed homes can be delivered quickly where they are needed most.”
