Homes to be built at a faster rate.

David Cameron  announces plans  to directly commission the building of more than 10,000 new homes, it is expected that homes will be built at a faster rate, smaller building firms will build on government sites with planning permission already in place.

The plan will be backed by an extra £1.2bn to prepare brownfield sites for the building of 30,000 starter homes over the next five years, these will be made available to first-time-buyers under the age of 40,  the £1.2bn will also fast track the creation of up to 30,000 market rate homes on 500 new brownfield sites by 2020.

The Prime Minister reportedly  said: “This Government was elected to deliver security and opportunity – whatever stage of life you’re at.

“Nothing is more important to achieving that than ensuring hard-working people can buy affordable homes.

“Today’s package signals a huge shift in government policy.

“Nothing like this has been done on this scale in three decades – government rolling its sleeves up and directly getting homes built.”

The plans form part of the Government’s commitment to build 200,000 starter homes before the end of the Parliament.
