Core Cities offer to the UK Government is to increase annual housing delivery by up to 25,000 homes across the eight English Core Cities.
This is not just a housing opportunity, it represents a UK-wide skills, employment, economic and low carbon dividend. Our Offer can be a major plank of the Government’s Levelling Up and Carbon Reduction agendas, creating jobs and growth, driving Net Zero.
With the right freedoms and policies in place, we can ensure these are high quality low carbon homes, avoiding the need for future retrofit.
In addition, we will aim to retrofit 1.98million homes across these 8 cities, working together with our member cities across the Devolved Nations to attract global investment through the UK Cities Climate Investment Commission and its Portfolio, which will be launched at COP 26.
