The Government has taken a number of steps to support rural housing, including through the National Planning Policy Framework where we clarified our approach to rural exception sites to make it clear that local authorities should support opportunities to bring forward sites that will provide affordable housing to meet identified local needs. Decisions on public spending will be made in the round as part of the Spending Review process. HM Treasury will work closely with MHCLG to deliver the government’s housing priorities through this process.
