Homes England partnership

South Essex Councils (SEC) is working to bring investment in infrastructure to support accelerated housing delivery to support the economy and meet existing housing needs. Over the last 12 months a detailed pipeline of housing schemes has been developed with a specific focus on schemes that are stalled because of issues of viability.

SEC has forged a trailblazing strategic place-based partnership with Homes England. This is just one of two such partnerships in the country.

SEC is focusing on:

  • Unblocking stalled schemes
  • Creating opportunities for small and medium sized builders in the region
  • Working in partnership with housing associations to accelerate the delivery of affordable homes.
