But we have not been building enough homes as a country for decades. The Government will soon be publishing a White Paper outlining further measures to tackle the housing shortage.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is not possible to provide an estimate of the geographical distribution of the £216 million funding for school maintenance. The Department for Education is considering options for how best to target this funding to existing schools in poor condition across the country.</p><p>Leeds East is part of Leeds local authority, which is receiving condition funding of £10.7 million this financial year (2016-17). In total, the Yorkshire and the Humber region is receiving condition funding totalling £74.9 million this financial year.[1]</p><p>The additional £216 million takes total investment in school condition to well over £10 billion in this Parliament. As part of this the £4.4 billion Priority School Building Programme is rebuilding or refurbishing those school buildings in the worst condition across the country. Overall 58 schools in Yorkshire and the Humber were successful in their applications to the programme, two of which are in Leeds.</p><p>Details on current and future school condition allocations are published here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/capital-allocations" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/capital-allocations</a></p><p>Details on successful applications to the Priority School Building Programme Phases 1 and 2 are published here:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/psbp-list-of-successful-applicants" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/psbp-list-of-successful-applicants</a></p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/priority-school-building-programme-2-list-of-successful-schools" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/priority-school-building-programme-2-list-of-successful-schools</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>[1] These amounts include Devolved Formula Capital which is allocated directly to schools, but do not include allocations made to academies or Multi Academy Trusts in the area. As Trusts often allocate funding across local authority boundaries, it is not possible to calculate total condition funding for a local area.</p><p> </p>
