Last week the government launched two streams of investment to tackle issues on potential housing sites and get homes built in areas where they are needed most.
The Land Assembly Fund and the Small Sites Fund will help release land to deliver 300,000 new homes a year by the mid-2020s.
The £1.3 billion Land Assembly Fund, will be used to acquire land needing work and get it ready for the market, making it less risky for developers to invest in and start building. Outside of London this work will be carried out by Homes England.
For public land owners or local authorities that are struggling to get building on land in their area, the £630 million Small Sites Fund will provide grant funding to speed up getting the right infrastructure in place to support home building on stalled small sites to provide the homes their communities need.
The government will work closely with the Greater London Authority to help ensure targeted funding through the Land Assembly Fund and Small Sites Fund can deliver additional homes in the capital.
