Government Sells Enough Brownfield Sites To Build 68,000 New Homes

The Department for Communities and Local Government has issued a press release highlighting that Government departments have sold enough brownfield sites to build 68,000 homes. Over 430 sites have now been sold across the country.

Commenting, Housing Minister Kris Hopkins MP said:

“The government is a major landholder and hard-working taxpayers expect us to use these assets effectively. That’s why we have already delivered on our promise to release thousands of acres of brownfield land, the same number of homes as are in the whole of Blackpool, to protect the greenbelt and build new homes where they are needed.

“We’re making it easier for the public to see what land we own, and challenge us if they think they could use it better. Councils should now follow our lead, and consider if their land and property could be sold and used for delivering new homes, jobs and businesses in their communities.”
