Property Week quotes Claire Fallows on the regeneration of brownfield sites in England

The property industry has welcomed the government’s pledge to provide an additional £60m to councils to redevelop brownfield sites for housing.

The Brownfield Land Release Fund 2, launched by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) on 18 January, will aim to bring forward around 5,800 new homes by March 2027, and to create 18,000 jobs in the construction and housing sectors.

Claire Fallows, Partner and Head of Planning comments:

“Brownfield developments have long been touted as the solution to encourage development across the country, in line with the government’s Levelling Up ambitions.

Yet, as material costs soar and the financial burdens on development grow, brownfield development is becoming more and more expensive. So it is positive to see the government backing housebuilding through the second release of this fund, although continued investment is needed to make a real step change.

“Importantly, more difficult and unpopular decisions must be made to ensure that everyone has access to a decent home. The government must back housing delivery in all areas of the country from the top”.
