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.
