The deals were awarded via the government’s £350m Local Authority Accelerated Construction (LAAC) programme and are intended to help unlock public land and speed up the delivery of local authority housing schemes.

The finance will be used by the local authorities to invest in infrastructure and enabling works to get 13 sites, between Somerset and Cheshire, ready for the development of new homes. 

Stephen Kinsella, chief land and development officer at Homes England, said: “This funding will enable local authorities to prepare their sites for development and to bring forward the construction of homes. 

“New homes will then be built out at pace using modern methods of construction.”

These methods include factory fabricated components and 3D modular construction, with the various authorities encouraged to use local SMEs.
