Further to the response given by the Secretary of State in October of last year I can confirm we are continuing with our commitment to affordable housing providing £8 billion up to 2011.

Furthermore, the Housing Corporation has announced allocations for the new Affordable Housing Programme for 2008-11 which will contribute towards our Housing Green Paper target of providing 70,000 new affordable homes per annum by 2010-11 of which 45,000 homes will be for social rent.

Following their invite to local providers to bid for affordable homes investment the Housing Corporation have recently announced that £11 million has been approved for 229 homes for the period 2008-11 in Wirral local authority.
