The £268.5 million allocated to Supporting Economic Growth/Housing Supply in the Draft Budget 2011-12 covers a range of expenditure. This includes spending commitments in relation to previously approved affordable housing and regeneration projects, and new investment in affordable housing supply through the New Supply Shared Equity Scheme with Developers (amounting to £5 million), and the Investment and Innovation Fund (IIF) (amounting to £50 million). Our current proposed timetable is that IIF bids will be assessed in June/July 2011 and allocations, including those to local authorities for council house building, will be decided in August 2011.
