Responding to the launch of round 2 funding for the Government’s Brownfield Land Release Fund, Cllr James Jamieson, Chairman of the Local Government Association, said:

“We are delighted to be a key partner in supporting the Government’s £180m Brownfield Land Release Fund (BLRF2).

“Councils sit at the centre of the collective national ambition to provide more and better housing, and this fund offers an excellent opportunity for English councils to unlock their brownfield land for new homes and deliver local housing priorities.

“With multiple application windows over the next three years and built in support from the One Public Estate programme, councils can tackle complex and challenging brownfield sites to benefit their communities.”
