14 sites have been earmarked for the governments £475m Local Infrastructure Fund, which provides funding injections for paused housing developments.

Housing minister Mark Prisk said the support would “help deliver the homes this country needs, create thousands of jobs and inject millions of pounds of investment into local economies.”
Homes and Communities Agency chief executive Andy Rose said: “This investment from the Local Infrastructure Fund is about building momentum behind some of those larger locally-backed housing developments to accelerate the supply of new homes.
“There is work to be done to ensure these bids deliver value for money for the taxpayer and fit with local priorities, but I am looking forward to getting out on site and seeing progress on successful bids in the months ahead.”
The programme, which focuses on large sites, has already struck five deals with those involved in projects.
These include one in Sherford in Devon, Cranbrook in Exeter, Fairfield near Milton Keynes and Wokingham.
