The Government has allocated £11m to help local authorities develop brownfield land into good quality housing.

Announced today by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC), the funding will come from the Brownfield Land Release Fund (BLRF) and will support 23 redevelopment schemes across 15 councils.

‘Our brownfield-first approach is transforming underused sites into thriving communities where people want to live, work and visit,’ said housing minister Christopher Pincher MP.

The following local authorities will benefit from the funding:

  • Barrow Borough Council
  • Blackpool Council
  • Chorley Borough Council
  • Folkstone & Hythe District Council
  • Gloucester City Council
