The affordable housing projects delivering the houses of the future.

The programme aims to create demonstrator schemes to help inform us about the type of homes we should support in the future.

The Programme, which is funded by £90m over three years, seeks to stimulate the design and delivery of new quality, affordable homes to:

  • increase supply as part of the 20,000 target
  • speed up delivery of homes to the market
  • trial new housing models and methods of delivery that address issues such as pressing housing need; fuel poverty; demographic change; help carbon reduction targets
  • prove the replicability of innovative housing models.

The programme is split into three phases:

Year 1: 2017-18 

In 2017/18 the programme funded affordable housing projects from Registered Social Landlords (RSL) and local authorities. 22 schemes were approved however only 20 proceeded.

Year 2: 2018-19

In year two the programme approved funding for 26 schemes from RSLs, local authorities and also the private sector for the first time.

Year 3: 2019-20

Information on Year 3 will be released later. The launch date is anticipated to be the end of February 2019. A launch event is also being planned and will take place in February 2019.
