HCA to get involved

The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) will do everything it can to change the way that housing is supplied and would encourage the development of housing schemes that mixed affordable rented housing with homes at intermediate rents, as it plans to buy land from house builders in a bid to build new developments and boost the stagnant housing market. The agency plans to make land available for development, unlock surplus supplies of public sector land and target the acquisition of private sector land banks.
