Locally-led large scale housing schemes are an important vehicle for meeting the country’s housing needs. By definition they are complex, needing to resolve multiple issues, but they also provide an excellent opportunity to deliver economic, social and environmentally sustainable places which make a positive difference to local communities.

Many of these schemes face a number of barriers that are hampering their progress. We are launching a programme of support over a 6-year period designed to address these barriers and help accelerate and unlock housing developments of at least 1,500 housing units that have slowed down or stalled completely.

Funding is being made available on the basis that it is recoverable. It will make investments to March 2020 and will be operated as an open competition. There is a minimum investment of £500,000 and must be on a site with capacity for 1500 units.

Bidding for Large Sites Infrastructure Fund open

Expressions of interest to bid for the Large Sites Infrastructure Fund has reopened. Bidding is open on a continuous basis until the fund has been allocated. Bids will be assessed and prioritised against the criteria set out in the prospectus and where applicable will be allocated to the shortlist.

The intention is to run Continuous Market Engagement to the end of March 2020 to allow schemes to come forward for support at the point that it is needed and enable a robust and well informed picture of locally-led large scale development activity to be established.
