105 shortlisted for housing support

17 September 2012 The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) has revealed 105 schemes that have been shortlisted for a share in the government’s Get Britain Building initiative.
Over 160 expressions of interest were submitted to the second round of the programme, which is aimed at unlocking up to 16,000 new homes by providing financial support to builders to get stalled schemes off the ground.

The second round of the £570m fund was opened to schemes covering as few as just 15 homes.

“The Get Britain Building programme is offering housebuilders the financial support to get stalled developments back on track, and I’m pleased that more than 100 projects can move forward to the due diligence phase,” said Pat Ritchie, chief executive of the HCA.
