Housing Market Renewal Transition

In May 2011 the Housing Minister announced transition funding would be made available to the five most challenged former Housing Market Renewal (HMR) areas targeted at helping the most vulnerable households in the worst streets.

On 24 November 2011, the Housing Minister announced the allocations of £35.5m - which will be match funded by the local authorities to reach £71m – to support these areas.

These allocations were made after the affected local authorities had submitted proposals to re-house households isolated in stalled schemes, and provide a structured exit from the former HMR programme either with a transition scheme or replaced by a locally-funded regeneration scheme.

The allocations are as follows:
