East Devon could get a (small?) slice of new homes pie

“The government has confirmed 23,000 new affordable homes will be delivered across England through a £1.7bn investment deal.

That will include at least 12,500 social rent homes in high-cost areas.

Communities Secretary James Brokenshire also confirmed councils could bid for a share of £1bn of extra borrowing to build houses.

The money will be allocated to areas with the greatest pressure on affordability.

Included in that list are: Cornwall; North, West, East and mid Devon, Plymouth, Exeter, the South Hams and Teignbridge.”
