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

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