Local authoriites to share £1bn Decent Homes allocation

28 Sep 12 The government has allocated nearly £800m to go on improvements to sub-standard council houses over the next two years.

Housing Minister Mark Prisk said that the funding, to be spread across 41 councils, would bring more than 86,000 homes up to a decent living standard. Work will include new roofs, windows, kitchens and heating systems.

The funding sees the Decent Homes Programme through to the end of this parliament, confirming the indicative allocations made in 2011.

Almost £1.6bn was allocated in the current Spending Review to deal with Decent Homes Backlog. Councils were allocated £612m for years 2011/12 and 12/13, and this announcement confirms the £982.7m indicative allocations for years 2013/14 and 2014/15.

Mr Prisk said:  "The benefits of the £1bn I've confirmed today reach far beyond tenants themselves and into the local economy. With every pound spent on improvements boosting local business, creating new jobs and supporting local spending, I want to see councils realising the benefits of this cash as soon as possible."
