More land for Housing

Andrew WilliamsNews

The Government is planning to release enough previously-used public land and buildings to provide sites for over 100,000 new homes by 2015.

Over two thirds of the housing is earmarked for surplus land and property from three sources: the Ministry of Defence, the Department of Health and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

The government has also pledged that it will continue to identify and make available as many brownfield and previously used sites as possible.
