Budget 2020: Government unveils £400m brownfield fund


The government will provide £400m for Mayoral Combined Authorities and local areas to build housing on brownfield land across the country.

The Chancellor is expected to follow up that announcement with planning reform measures today.

Randeesh Sandhu, chief executive of Urban Exposure, said: “We’re really pleased there’s been a focus on innovating the planning process and cash committed to bringing brownfield sites forward for development – both of which will assist developers across the country to build more, faster.”

A spokeswoman for developer Godwin Developments, said: “We are delighted to hear that the government has pledged £400m towards the repurposing of brownfield sites across cities and towns.”
