The government has announced two major new policy initiatives regarding the construction of 40,000 new homes.
- 10,000 new homes are to be commissioned directly by the government on public land.
- More finance is to be allocated to the preparation of brownfield sites that will be used for another 30,000 starter homes.
It is widely acknowledged that many brownfield sites across the UK have been sitting unused for too long, and there have been calls from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and other professional bodies for these areas to be developed. If you have land that you think may be suitable for development feel free to contact us on 01929 472609 for advice as to the potential and the best way to proceed.
