Homes England has launched an Interactive Land Hub to help builders quickly match plots of land that are ready for development.

Developers will have access to nearly 2,500 acres of land, including small and medium-sized building companies, to purchase and build properties on.

Homes England states that 148 sites are going to be made available via its online hub over the next 18 months. The hub will include details of the planning status, the size and proposed use - such as residential, industrial or commercial of each site.

Sir Edward Lister, chairman at Homes England, said: “Bringing another 148 sites to market demonstrates the scale of Homes England’s ambition to unlock land and accelerate the delivery of homes the country needs.

“We are keen to speak to developers about the opportunities in our latest pipeline and want to collaborate with both major developers and smaller builders to create a more resilient housing market.”

Additionally, Homes England has agreed a partnership with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) to develop land being released by the Ministry of Defence. This has the potential to deliver over 10,000 homes across seven brownfield sites.

Nick Walkley, chief executive at Homes England, said: “This partnership provides another great opportunity for Homes England to intervene in the housing market and make homes happen.

“By combining our skills and expertise with the DIO to progress brownfield sites no longer needed by the Ministry of Defence, we will speed up the process of providing much-needed homes.”
