New Homes

I was interested to read that the UK Government has announced the New Homes Bonus Payments Scheme, totalling over £900m, which will be shared amongst England’s 353 councils. This scheme allows councils to enter into new build schemes and will enable them to bring empty homes back into use. It follows hot on the heels of Boris Johnson’s announcement that an additional 11,000 new homes are to be built in the London Plan. It is a now more important than ever for the UK and Scottish Governments to focus in on a new build program to add to the number of properties coming on to the market.
