Self-building plots given boost by spending review

THE provision of plots of land for self-builders has been boosted by a £100m fund announced by the UK Government.

The funding forms part of the government’s Spending Review, which the government says “prioritises funding to support the government’s response to Covid-19, invest in the UK’s recovery and deliver on promises to the British people”.

And in a section of the review about ‘supporting local economies’, in England only, the review says it intends: “supporting  housing delivery and regeneration, unlocking brownfield sites, regenerating estates and releasing serviced plots on public sector land across the country  through an additional £100 million in 2021-22  on top of the £400 million Brownfield Fund announced at Budget 2020”.
