The One Public Estate Programme has launched the Brownfield Land Release Fund (BLRF).
This fund comprises up to £75 million of capital grant, available to eligible English local authorities to support local authority brownfield land release for housing, with £25 million ring-fenced to support self and custom-build delivery. One Public Estate partnerships are invited to coordinate applications to the fund from local authorities across their OPE partnership areas. Applications are welcomed by 23:59 Wednesday 2 June 2021. For further details about the fund and how to apply, please visit our website. A BLRF Bid Writing Workshop and a Self & Custom Build Workshop will be held to support local authority officers to develop funding applications. For further details about the fund or the workshops, please contact your OPE Regional Programme Managers.
