In a new garden village in Derbyshire about 3,200 houses are to be built, after the Government had announced a financing package in the total amount of GBP 9 million.

The new village near Sinfin is said to be Infinity and receive £ 150,000 from the government to begin construction.

The Garden Communities project is expected to deliver 200,000 properties in large locations by 2050. Recent government funding will help prepare 21 sites for development.

The money will be useful for master planning and technical studies.

Work is already underway on 10,000 objects in garden towns and villages. 36,000 should be completed by 2022.

Housing Minister Kit Malthouse, MP, said: "We have not built enough housing in this country over the past three decades, and we are turning that around by working towards our goal of building 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s.

"This $ 9 million funding will give council members the support and cash they need to help them plan new developments and get dredgers on the ground.

Among the developments being funded is a 2,000 home and custom homestead in Bicester, which was purchased by the country from the Department of Defense.

This includes developments in Basingstoke, Didcot, Taunton, Harlow-Gilston and Northamptonshire, where work is already underway on the first phase of development.

The funding is managed by Homes England.
