Builders Finance Fund: guidance and shortlist

The Builders Finance Fund is designed to help restart and speed up smaller housing developments that have slowed down or stalled.

The £525 million Builders Finance Fund is designed to help restart and speed up housing developments between 5 and 250 units that have slowed down or stalled. Its main objective is to address difficulties in accessing development finance faced by some housebuilders, particularly smaller developers, and to help bring forward stalled but viable sites.

Funding is being made available on the basis that it is recoverable. There is a minimum investment of £200,000.
