New OPE funding announced

The government has awarded new funding to release land for housing and transform local communities. £15 million will go to support over 100 public sector projects - freeing up land for housing, creating growth and improving public services.

OPE banner

The government has announced that new funds have been awarded to 57 public sector partnerships taking part in the One Public Estate (OPE) programme. The new funds will provide support to use publicly-owned land and buildings more efficiently.

The One Public Estate programme was launched in 2013 to make better use of public-sector sites, free up space for new homes and create jobs. It encourages the emergency services, local councils and government departments to work more closely together by sharing sites and creating public-sector ‘hubs’ - where services are delivered in one place. So far, the programme has saved taxpayers £24million in running costs, created 5,745 new jobs and released land for the development of 3,336 new homes.

The latest round of the programme will see money and support given to more than 100 local public-sector partnerships across England, to bring forward proposals for a range of new projects on public-sector sites.
