Housing grants to go to Princes Risborough and Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire

Buckinghamshire is set for new houses, after the government announced that they will be investing £33.5m in housing projects around the area.

The finance comes from the Housing Infrastructure Fund, and will subsequently be used to support and assist projects that will enable a series of new homes to be built in the region.

Of that money, Wycombe District Council have received £12m, which is set to be used to expand Princes Risborough.

Elsewhere, a scheme to improve the Aylesbury link road – and to also deliver housing in Aylesbury Garden Town – has had £9.5m allocated to them to make sure said developments can go ahead.

In addition, the government have also announced £4.5m for the Beaconsfield road projects and £7.5m in order to relight Abbey Barn Lane to the south of High Wycombe.

Sajid Javid, Housing Secretary, said: “My priority is building the homes this country desperately needs.

“This first wave of investment in projects across the East of England will help get up to 22,000 homes off the ground, making a huge difference to communities across the region.”

The government announced that they are giving £866m to be invested into 133 local housing projects up and down the country, with other notable developments springing up in Colchester, Thetford and Chelmsford.
