The dream of owning a home will become reality for thousands as ministers today set out their £8.6billion affordable homes plan.
Tanti quanti 119,000 properties will be built in the first tranche of the Government’s Affordable Homes Programme.
Half will be sold, helping young people get their first foot on the housing ladder, while tens of thousands more will be rented out at discounted rates.
The programme was announced in the 2020 Budget and is expected to deliver up to 180,000 new properties by 2026 – costing £11.5billion and is the biggest such investment in a decade.
La notte scorsa, Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick said: ‘This huge funding package will make the ambition of owning a home a reality for families by making it realistic and affordable.’

Ha aggiunto: ‘Creating more opportunities for home ownership is central to this Government.
‘This £9 billion funding is a landmark moment for our affordable homes programme and will ensure good quality housing for all as we build back better after the pandemic.
‘We are also ensuring tens of thousands of new homes for rent are built in the years ahead, including social rent, so those on the lowest incomes can enjoy good quality, secure, rented homes, built and managed by reputable providers.’
The £8.6 billion allocation will deliver properties including 57,000 homes for ownership, 29,600 for social rent, typically around 50% per 60% of market rates, e 6,250 affordable rural homes.
The remaining homes will be available for ‘affordable’ affitto, hanno detto i funzionari.
Quasi 90 partnerships across England, including councils, housing associations and private providers, successfully bid for a share of the cash.
