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
