We want to empower places to deliver proposals that are right for their area. Places were required to set out the local economic impact of their plans and how they would avoid displacement, in the EOI.

While DLUHC is currently assessing those proposals received, the precise number of Zones will depend on factors, such as their overall geographic spread and the fiscal cost of the programme.

Further information will be set out in due course.
