Get Britain Building

This is a £500 million fund to provide at least 12,000 homes by helping get work started on sites that have planning permission and local support.

The Get Britain Building fund is a recoverable investment by government to help house builders who are having problems getting finance by sharing risk between government and the house builder.

Cheesman's Green in Ashford, Kent, was the first site to benefit in April 2012. You can also find out how sites are progressing at Bath Riverside, Carlisle Park in South Yorkshire, and at Heron's Reach near Oldham.

Prospectus and Bidding Rounds

There were two bidding round for Get Britain Building (GBB) with a prospectus published for each.

The main changes from the round one bidding process are:

  • The minimum site size has been reduced to 15 homes
  • Only loans and equity-risk sharing investment products are available
  • Work must start on site by 31 March 2013.

Following the shortlisting stage, applicants were contacted and asked to provide due diligence information. Successful projects were then awarded funding through the HCA’s Project Executive and contract negotiations commenced.

All Get Britain Building schemes are now contracted and are in the delivery stage of the programme.  Further information on the number of homes delivered through the programme can be found through the biannual publications of the HCAs National Statistics.

The HCA Partner Portal for monthly monitoring returns

You must submit your monthly monitoring return (MMR) using the secure online form on the HCA Partner Portal.

The new questionnaire format provides a greater level of control and simplicity and we are able to provide clear instructions on completing the return and the type of information required. The online form will highlight sections have not been fully completed and you will not be able to submit the MMR to be submitted until all the information has been entered.

You can log into the system at any time to access your workspace and your current or previous MMR submissions. You will only have access to your own projects and monthly returns. Our project managers will only have access to the completed MMR submissions for projects that they are responsible for.

Following the exchange of contracts, we will contact you to with the registration details to access the portal.

Here is the guidance on how to use the partner portal to submit your monthly monitoring returns.
