Self-build Housing: South-west

Volume 635: debated on Monday 22 January 2018

The Government are promoting a step change in self-build through the £4.5 billion home-building fund and the 2016 self-build regulations.

I welcome the Minister to his place. May I just ask him what discussions he has had with the Treasury regarding the continuation of the community housing fund to deliver more local houses for people in Cornwall?

My hon. Friend is right to raise this issue. The community housing fund was worth £60 million in its first year. In the context of the Budget in November, we announced that it would be continuing for a further three years. That includes capital and revenue funding, and it is part of the Government’s drive to support community groups bringing forward home-build projects.
