NHS transfer agreed

The transfer of the first swathe of surplus NHS sites to English Partnerships to help provide homes aimed at first-time buyers has been agreed. The handover, announced last week, will see an initial 67 out of a total of 96 sites transferred from the Department of Health to the national regeneration agency. The move aims to put surplus public sector land to more effective use and help meet housing need, particularly through the government's first-time buyers initiative. It is estimated that the NHS sites could accommodate up to 15,000 homes nationally, with at least 5,000 being affordable.
