The UK needs to double the number of new homes built per year to keep up with population growth. Shortage of stock means that housing represents a major opportunity for large scale capital investment, including sub-sectors like private market sales, build to rent, student accommodation and senior living.
The £3.5 billion Private Rented Sector Housing Guarantee Scheme (PRS) and £1bn Build to Rent Fund have been made available through Government. These provide opportunities to take advantage of the UK’s strong build-to-rent sector, while household formation continues to outstrip house building.
Homes England is the UK’s dedicated housing delivery agency, acting as a primary gateway into the housing market. Over £27bn will be made available to Homes England over the next few years, helping to unlock land, provide assistance and create ambitious private-public partnerships.
