Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

A SHARE of £17m is up for grabs for any­one plan­ning new com­mu­nity build­ing projects in the North.

Hous­ing Min­is­ter Mark Prisk an­nounced the fund, which will of­fer ad­di­tional sup­port to peo­ple with plans and ideas for their neigh­bour­hood, which could range from self-build homes to com­mu­nity shops.

Jennifer Had­land, of Smiths Gore’s Plan­ning depart­ment, says: “This means that com­mu­ni­ties can work to­gether to make pos­i­tive changes to the ar­eas in which they live; whether it’s a new play­ground, ren­o­vat­ing an empty home or mak­ing plots avail­able for house build­ing.”

The fund is avail­able for com­mu­ni­ties out­side Lon­don un­til March 2015.
