Commencing in April 2011, the New Homes Bonus will match fund the additional council tax raised on the net increase in effective housing stock for six years.

Final allocations for 2011-12 were announced on 4 April and rewards housing delivered between October 2009 and October 2010. Hastings borough council has received £194,710 for 2011-12. Over the six years this amounts to £1,168,263 based on year one delivery. The future rewards for Hastings will depend on the amount of net additional housing delivered in the coming years.

Full details of the calculation for the bonus can be found in the final scheme design document, available at:
