The draft revised National Planning Policy Framework promotes the effective use of land, including brownfield sites.

The Government has agreed a bespoke housing package with the West Midlands Combined Authority, which includes Coventry, that will see 215,000 homes delivered by 2030/1. Through the package we have backed the ambition of the Mayor through a Land Fund of up to £100 million to acquire and bring land forward around priority sites across the area.
