The Department for Communities & Local Government has a pot of £3m available, that it reckons is enough to get work started on 85 sites around the country and 25,000 new homes.

Estimates suggest there are 50,000 new homes with planning permission on which construction work has yet to start, for whatever reason, often relating to completing financial agreements or signing-off conditions attached to planning permissions.
