Government support for Housing

At the recent Conservative Party conference, Gavin Barwell the Housing Minister announced a £2Bn accelerated construction Scheme. The minister has pledged a range of initiatives and interventions to encourage greater house building to appear in a forthcoming White Paper. These will be announced during the Autumn statement on 23rd Nov 2016. Indications are that the thrust will be a focus on the supply side with a wide range of tenures being encouraged across the board with specific encouragement for SME Housebuilders and self builds and institutional PRS schemes.
