New £8.5 million Fund to Help Communities Deliver Discounted Homes (England)

A multi-million-pound support package to deliver thousands of discounted homes has been launched by the Government. Volunteer groups will be able to apply for between £10,000 and £50,000 to help identify suitable sites for discounted homes, get planning permission for them and to provide other technical support.

Further free specialist advice and guidance will also be made available for those who participate in the pilot.

The government will be making £8.5 million available for the 3-year pilot project which will help provide cut-price homes for younger people and families in need of housing, through locally-led neighbourhood plans.

The pilot project will run from 13th May 2019 to 31st March 2022. The Government will review the outcomes of the pilot in January 2020 to inform arrangements for future years.
