Housing growth is a priority for the Sheffield City Region. In the last three years we have managed to improve annual housing growth from just over 3,000 per annum to over 6,000 homes being brought to market each year. National programmes don’t work well for our housing market. The Housing Intervention Fund will help private sector developers bring forward stalled housing developments – accelerating housing growth locally. The project aims to deliver 1,000 new homes, creating 2,000 construction jobs.
This project includes a contribution from the Government’s Local Growth Fund resources which is part of the Government’s continued investment in the Northern Powerhouse.
SCR LGF allocation: £10,000,000
Total project cost: £10,000,000
