Homes England is the government’s housing accelerator, and our mission is to intervene in the housing market to ensure more homes are built in areas of greatest need, and to improve affordability.
As a Government Agency, Homes England has a range of mechanisms that can assist in the delivery of new sustainable communities. We can act in places where the market is not meeting demand, where multiple developers are unable to agree on a shared approach or where the cost of up front infrastructure deters the private sector.
We have access upfront infrastructure funding to make sure the appropriate facilities are in place to support the new homeowners and the existing surrounding communities. We also improve productivity of housing projects, and maximise housing delivery.
Homes England has a track record of delivering homes and the necessary supporting infrastructure on similarly complex sites, including 10,000 homes in Northstowe in Cambridgeshire and 3,500 homes at The Northern Arc at Burgess Hill in West Sussex.
Homes England is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC).
L&Q Estates has been in the business of creating places that people can call home for more than 60 years. More recently in 2017, we became part of the L&Q Group – one of the UK’s leading housing associations and developers.
Our experience and expertise lies in identifying and acquiring land, and promoting and securing planning, to help deliver the site-wide infrastructure and community facilities required to develop high-quality places where people want to live.
With a portfolio that contains developments ranging from 25 to 6,500 houses, each site is individually tailored to meet the needs of a local area. Our requisite skills, resources and mindset to delivering unique and high-quality developments places L&Q Estates at the forefront of facilitating much-needed private and affordable housing in the UK.
Key to our success is our commitment to working and engaging with the local communities within which we operate. We pride ourselves on the efforts we go to in ensuring we fully understand the needs of the local community, with the L&Q Estates team taking a lead role in engaging with local residents, stakeholders, community groups, parish and town councils, ward members and politicians.

Our team is made up of some of the UK’s most skilled and experienced urban designers, surveyors, planners and housebuilding professionals.
