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). Subject to receiving sufficient bids which meet the criteria, we plan to allocate at least £20 million of the IIF to local authorities for council house building.
