This innovative £1 billion partnership will provide a significant boost to a diverse range of residential property developers and drive a dynamic and competitive marketplace.
Nick Walkley, CEO, Homes England
The UK Government has a target to build 300,000 new homes a year. Barclays and Homes England are collaborating to provide up to £1bn in residential development debt funding to help deliver more homes at a faster pace.
The fund will help suitable development schemes looking for debt funding comprising senior and mezzanine tranches of up to 80% of cost and 70% of value. Loans between £5m and £100m are available to borrowers seeking to increase the number, or accelerate the progress of new homes in England.
"We’re the government’s housing accelerator. We have the appetite, influence, expertise and resources to drive positive market change. We’re making possible the new homes England needs, helping to improve neighbourhoods and grow communities. We welcome partners who share our ambition to challenge traditional norms and build better homes faster. Join us in breaking new ground to make this happen." Homes England
