To ask Her Majesty’s Government what they envisage the £2.3 billion Housing Infrastructure Fund being spent on, and over what timescale.
7 December 2016
The government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund covers £2.3 billion of new funding up to 2020/21 as part of the government’s National Productivity Investment Fund. Local authorities will be able to bid for funding for infrastructure such as new roads or utility connections (such as water, energy and internet) to unlock housing sites in high demand areas. This will support the delivery of up to 100,000 new homes. Further details on how this Fund will be allocated to local authorities will be set out in due course.
