Boosting building

A DERBYSHIRE housing provider is backing a national campaign which aims to kick-start new home-building across the country.

Derwent Living is joining other organisations across the country in the National Housing Federation (NHF) ‘Yes to Homes’ campaign – which aims to encourage the building of more affordable homes.

Suzy Brain England, chair of the Derwent Living board, said: “The Yes to Homes campaign is encouraging community leaders and local people to support the development of new housing in their areas.

“The campaign aims to draw attention to a number of issues and draw attention to those who can’t afford to rent a home in the neighbourhoods they grew up in.”
