The East Midlands Combined County Authority (EMCCA) and Homes England are joining forces to unlock the delivery of stalled residential schemes across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. 

Having secured a devolved allocation of £16.8 million from the Brownfield Housing Fund (BHF), under the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC), EMCCA aims to rejuvenate brownfield sites across the region, through the delivery of between 1,000 and 1,400 new homes by March 2026. 

EMCCA and Homes England have issued a call for schemes, inviting expressions of interest from organisations – including private sector developers, local authorities and registered providers – which is open until Friday 10 May. 

Barry Cummins, Interim Land and Housing Programme Manager at EMCCA, said: “We’re committed to addressing under-investment and regional inequalities in our local area, whilst prioritising the environment and sustainability – this scheme empowers us to do just that. 

“Working with valued partners, our ambition is to build up to 1,400 new, high-quality homes, marking a significant stride toward unleashing the potential of brownfield regeneration across our region.” 

Schemes must align with eligibility and deliverability criteria, aligning with EMCCA’s Strategic Framework, which was approved in March 2024.
