To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, with reference to the press statment entitled, Brokenshire unveils £500 million affordable homes funding boost, published in January 2019, how many of the 11,000 homes will be built in (a) the Sheffield City Region and (b) Barnsley.
On 31 January, we announced a further eight Strategic Partnerships between Homes England and housing associations which will deliver an additional 11,676 affordable homes for £496.7 million of grant.
This takes our total to 23 Strategic Partnerships, which will deliver almost 40,000 additional affordable housing starts by March 2022.
In total, almost 3,900 affordable homes will be delivered in Yorkshire and the Humber through Strategic Partnerships. Given the flexibility on delivery we provide Strategic Partners, we are not able to break these down below regional areas.
All funding for Strategic Partnerships is from our £9 billion Affordable Homes Programme.
