answer text <p>Get Britain Building is a three-year scheme to provide development finance to unlock stalled sites.</p><p> </p><p>As explained to the hon. Member in the answer to her of 13 March 2014, <em>Official Report</em>, Column 312W, the prospectus for the first round of Get Britain Building programme was published on 22 December 2011. The prospectus for the second round was published on 21 June 2012. In both cases, the expressions of interest received after each prospectus were followed by due diligence and a contract agreement process. In that light, there was no expenditure in 2011, £29 million in 2012, £281 million in 2013 and (up to November 2014) £132 million in 2014.</p><p> </p><p>Across financial years, we anticipate expenditure of £159 million in 2012-13, £213 million in 2013-14 and £125 million in 2014-15. The programme should come in slightly under the budget headroom due to improving market conditions.</p><p> </p><p>Each contract agreement includes arrangements for the financial drawdowns under the facility, and there may be a number of drawdowns as a site is built out. Since interest is payable on the loans, contractors drawdown the agreed development finance as needed. This explains why the expenditure is incurred over the course of the programme rather than up front; however, the existence of the finance facility in itself gives developers the confidence and financial security to get building again.</p>

answer text <p>The average (median) rent of new Affordable Rent lets was £109 per week in England and £165 per week in London in 2013-14. These figures represent 80% of market rent across England and 55% of market rent in London.</p><p> </p><p>The Affordable Rent model allows for more new affordable housing to be delivered with lower levels of taxpayer capital subsidy and by levering in more private investment. The programme is helping deliver £15 billion of private investment in new affordable housing over the current spending review (2011-15), alongside £4.5 billion of public investment. Social rent and affordable rent go hand in hand; both help provide accommodation for those on low incomes.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>As the National Audit Office has observed: “the Department selected the best delivery model open to it for the funds it had available” and “the Department has so far achieved its policy objective to maximise the number of homes delivered within the available grant funding” (National Audit Office, “Financial viability of the social housing sector: introducing the Affordable Homes Programme”, 4 July 2012, HC465, pp. 6-7).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Our Affordable Housing programme is set to deliver a further 275,000 new affordable homes between 2015 and 2020, levering in £38 billion of public and private investment.</p><p> </p>
