The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) has confirmed that well over half of 165 uncommitted Kickstart and Local Authority New Build (LANB) schemes under review have secured funding.
Some 44 out of a total of 74 Kickstart schemes, and 61 LANB schemes out of a total of 91 schemes which were not under contract before the election purdah period began were given approval.
This will translate into over 4,800 new homes under Kickstart and over 600 homes under LANB.
Schemes that did not secure Kickstart or LANB funding may yet secure HCA finance through other routes, and the HCA said it was working with its regional teams to progress this.
Chief executive Sir Bob Kerslake, said: "Following a period of uncertainty, I am pleased to be able to firm up the position with our partners. Our allocations, based firmly on discussions with partners, have maximised the supply of affordable housing and value for money, meeting local priorities."
The following documents provide list of the housing schemes which did and did not secure funding approval:
- Kickstart Round 2 schemes which secured funding
- Kickstart Round 2 schemes which did not secure funding
- Details of LANB schemes which secured funding
- Details of LANB schemes which did not secure funding
The HCA will shortly be conducting a review of the Kickstart programme, with findings to be published later in the year.
