Partnership formed with plan to build up to 1,400 homes across the region

The East Midlands Combined County Authority (EMCCA) and Homes England are collaborating to revitalise residential projects throughout Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

With the allocation of £16.8m from the Brownfield Housing Fund (BHF) under the Department for Levelling Up, Housing, and Communities (DLUHC), EMCCA aims to target the delivery of 1,000 to 1,400 new homes by March 2026.

EMCCA and Homes England have issued a call for proposals, welcoming expressions of interest from various organisations including private sector developers, local authorities, and registered providers. The call remains open until Friday, May 10th.

Barry Cummins, interim land and housing programme manager at EMCCA, said: “We’re committed to addressing under-investment and regional inequalities in our local area, whilst prioritising the environment and sustainability – this scheme empowers us to do just that.

“Working with valued partners, our ambition is to build up to 1,400 new, high-quality homes, marking a significant stride toward unleashing the potential of brownfield regeneration across our region.”
