Thousands of homes will be built in growing communities as a result of a £142 million investment in infrastructure, the Housing Minister Kit Malthouse MP has confirmed.
The money will be spent on widening bridges, building roads and connecting utilities so up to 8,500 properties can be built.
The spending, under the Housing Infrastructure Fund, is all part of the government’s drive to deliver 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s.
Housing Minister Kit Malthouse MP said: "For decades, governments of all stripes and types have not built enough new homes but we are turning that around, brick by brick.
"We are driving to create homes, opportunities and thriving communities – and this £142 million investment will mean we can build more of the properties our country so badly needs.
"We need to keep upping our game and build more, better, faster, if we are to meet our ambition to deliver 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s."
The funding comes from the government’s £5.5 billion Housing Infrastructure Fund so that land can be made ready for development.
Money is allocated to authorities after a competitive funding allocation process.
