Starter home cash for Sh­effield

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY NEWS -

STARTER HOMES: Sh­effield is the only lo­cal au­thor­ity in York­shire to re­ceive gov­ern­ment cash to help build starter homes on brown­field sites. The first wave of 30 coun­cils were se­lected on the ba­sis of their po­ten­tial for early de­liv­ery of the scheme. The prop­er­ties will be avail­able to first-time buy­ers aged be­tween 23 and 40 at a dis­count of at least 20 per cent be­low mar­ket value. Sh­effield City Coun­cil is aim­ing to build 1,000 starter homes. If the part­ner­ship with gov­ern­ment and de­vel­op­ers goes well, work on the first homes could start later this year and the prop­er­ties could be on sale by 2018.
