The £525 million Builders Finance Fund is designed to help restart and speed up housing developments between 5 and 250 units that have slowed down or stalled.

The total fund must be used by 31 March 2017.


Schemes must be between 5 to 250 new homes.

Bidders for schemes between 5 – 14 units in size, the fund will be exclusive to SME’s only.

Bids must be submitted by a private sector bidder who must have control of the site.
