Multi-billion pound funding from the government will see the delivery of tens of thousands of new jobs and environmentally-friendly homes.
£1.3bn of investment has been confirmed today (August 4) by Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick to deliver hundreds of housing and infrastructure projects across the country.
To deliver a further 26,000 new homes while protecting greenfield sites, the government has also confirmed a £360m investment in Mayoral Combined Authority areas through its £400m Brownfield Fund.
A further £8m of funding has also been announced to help speed up the delivery of these new homes on brownfield sites.
Housing Secretary Rt Hon Robert Jenrick MP commented: “As we get Britain building we are also laying the foundations for a green economic recovery by investing in vital infrastructure for local communities, creating jobs and building environmentally-friendly homes with a huge £1.3 billion investment announced today.”
“This government is determined to level up all parts of the country and this funding will not only give a much needed boost to our economic recovery, it will help build the good quality, affordable homes the country needs.”
