In order to make First Homes available to local people and key workers as soon as possible, the First Homes Early Delivery Programme encourages housebuilders to convert Market Sale homes currently under construction to First Homes.

Over the summer we announced the launch of the first three First Homes sites in Derbyshire, Staffordshire and County Durham as part of the First Homes Early Delivery Programme, where homes are continuing to become available on the market.

Homes England also concluded a procurement process in October to deliver 1,500 First Homes by March 2023. The outcome of this procurement will be announced in due course.
