About us

We’re the government’s housing accelerator. We have the appetite, influence, expertise and resources to drive positive market change. By releasing more land to developers who want to make a difference, we’re making possible the new homes England needs, helping to improve neighbourhoods and grow communities. So we welcome partners who share our ambition to challenge traditional norms and build better homes faster. Join us in breaking new ground to make this happen.

We’re responsible for:

  • increasing the number of new homes that are built in England, including affordable homes and homes for market, sale or rent
  • improving existing affordable homes and bringing empty homes back into use as affordable housing
  • increasing the supply of public land and speeding up the rate that it can be built on
  • helping to stimulate local economic growth by using our land and investment, and attracting private sector investment in local areas.

Our priorities can be read in full in our corporate plan.

  • invest over £4 billion in building new homes, helping around 70,000 families and individuals to own or rent their own home
  • sell land that will be suitable for building around 6,000 more homes in the future
  • build over 315,000 square metres of new business floorspace
  • bring over 450 hectares of derelict land back into use for local people
  • make sure our organisation continues to develop so we are ready to respond to the things government asks us to do in the future.
