Get Britain Building Fast-Tracked Schemes


170 applications were submitted for the Homes and Communities Agency’s Get Britain Building Programme to kick start stalled housing jobs.
A list of 18 schemes has now been fast-tracked to unlock £46m in finance to start construction of 1,300 new homes.
The remainder of the bids will now be assessed with a shortlist of schemes released in mid-March. Pat Richie, chief executive of the HCA said, “We have had a strong response to our Programme and will now work to establish a shortlist of schemes which fit strongly with locally indentified priorities and represent good value for money for the taxpayer.”
Get Britain Building is intended to address difficulties in accessing development finance faces by some house builders and to help bring forward sites with planning permission.
