HOUSING developers in the Greater Birmingham, Solihull, South Staffordshire and North Worcestershire areas can from today access a new £9m fund to unlock stalled housing sites.
Launched by the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP), the Unlocking Housing Sites Programme will help to bring forward at least 500 new homes in the area, it is suggested.
The Government has confirmed details of £2bn of funding to be provided to local enterprise partnerships (LEPs) across England for infrastructure and housing development under the Local Growth Deals scheme.
England’s 39 LEPs, partnerships between local authorities and businesses, have decided on priorities for investment in their areas and have each agreed deals with the Government to receive a share of the funding towards specific projects in 2015/16.
