Government launches £420m plan to get Britain building

The housing minister Grant Shapps has announced details of a plan to get Britain building, as part of a £420 million project.

Over the next two years, it is expected that this will help stalled projects start again, creating up to 16,000 new homes, great news for those looking for property for sale in Brighton.

Contractors will be able to apply to receive part of the money as either a loan or an investment, where both government and developers invest.

Mr Shapps said: "The £420 million Getting Britain Building Fund will change this, unlocking these developments to get workers back on site and construction back on track to build up to 16,000 homes that would otherwise never get finished."

Earlier this week, the government also announced changes to the right-to-buy scheme to get more people onto the property ladder, with the discount available as much as trebling for many people.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801249424-ADNFCR
