Housing minister launches second phase of housing programme

Housing minister John Healey launched the second phase of a programme to build thousands of council homes across England this week.

He has written to all council leaders encouraging them to submit bids for a share of £180 million that could fund a further 1,200 homes. The move follows Healey's announcement last month that 47 councils are to share £127 million in the programme's first wave (Planning, 18 September, p4).
