Pathfinders get housing market renewal budgets

  • Comment

The government has unveiled the three-year budgets for its programme to revitalise flagging housing markets.

Announcing the split of the£1.038bn housing market renewal budget to the government’s 11 pathfinder projects, junior housing minister Iain Wright said that the biggest allocation (£152m) will be awarded to the Merseyside pathfinder, which covers rundown parts of Liverpool City Council and Sefton and Wirral MBCs.

The next biggest winner is the Elevate East Lancashire partnership, which will receive£150m over the next three years and Manchester/Salford (£140m).

The North Staffordshire and Transforming South Yorkshire pathfinders have scooped£116m and£114m respectively.

Mr Wright said: "This is a long-term programme, and there is still much work to do. The pathfinder scheme has already made great progress in these areas, and this money will help bridge the gaps that still remain."
