£25M Fund Opens: Bid to Unlock Self & Custom Housing Plots

One Public Estate is urgently calling eligible English local authorities to bid for a share of the £75M Brownfield Land Release Fund (BLRF).

Custom Build Homes (CBH) welcomes the allocation of £25M for the Self and Custom Land Release Fund to encourage local authorities to unlock greenfield and brownfield sites in public ownership with viability issues, for self and custom build developments. Deadline for applications close Wednesday 2 June 2021.

CBH is working with a number of local authorities to bring forward new self and custom build developments. The company is in prime position to support local authorities to prepare their bids for projects that can be delivered within the parameters of the new Funds where there is evidence of real demand for our products. 

Commenting on the Fund, Custom Build Homes’ Director of Planning & Strategic Engagement Mario Wolf said: “This Fund is further evidence that the Government is serious about unlocking the potential of the self-build and custom housebuilding market and complements the support available to the private sector- so it should be welcomed.

“We will be looking to offer our support to our local authority partners to identify suitable sites and prepare a credible business case so they can access to the fund and work with them to bring high quality custom build homes to market in the timescales specified.”
