41 councils across the country have been allocated funds to kickstart regeneration projects which could deliver over 2,200 homes for local communities.
So far, only £35 million of the £180 million Brownfield Land Release Fund 2, announced earlier this month by the DLUHC, has been allocated.
The remaining £140 million will be distributed over the next two years and is expected to create up to 17,600 new homes and support up to 54,000 jobs in the housebuilding sector.
There are 59 regeneration projects in this initial round, helping to transform derelict sites such as disused car parks and old industrial sites and deliver high-quality homes. Source: Dataloft, Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities November 2022
