Creating a more diverse local construction industry

The Council will promote more diversity and competition in the local construction sector. This is to attract and encourage participation from a wider variety of housing business and from small local builders.

The Council will enable housing delivery and support new opportunities by:

  • Promoting a thriving and diverse construction sector. We will support SME builders and start up housing business by releasing small sites for development under the New Housing Delivery Programme
  • Promoting alternative and innovative development models. Including self- build /custom build, community build and off-site methods of construction
  • Supporting SMEs with skills/business training under the Sheffield City Region European Funding programmes.
  • Considering opportunities to launch an investment fund for small builders. The Council will seek external funding opportunities to boost investment from small builders
  • Promoting more diverse and inclusive development panels to enable SMEs to register as pre-qualified housing developer
