The Government is committed to making our housing market work and levelling up our communities by making sure opportunity is spread more widely across the country. This is why the creation of new residential units, or the improvement of existing ones, will continue to be a potential output in round two of the Levelling Up Fund. This builds on the success of other funding programmes, such as the Towns Fund, where investment is also leading towards increased housing and better infrastructure.
