Today, I have written an article for The Daily Telegraph on the government’s announcement of £866 million investment in local infrastructure to unlock new projects, to build up to 200,000 new homes.
Last year, 217,000 new homes were delivered, and 2017 saw the highest number of first-time buyers in ten years. But, we need to be delivering 300,000 homes each year, if we’re going to provide more affordable homes for the next generation.
Today’s announcement is one element of our ambitious strategy to deliver the homes Britain needs. You can access my column here.
