HCA announces £8.8m low carbon grants

Housing schemes in Birmingham, Coventry and Leeds are among those to be awarded a share of £8.8 million to develop low carbon infrastructure, England's housing and regeneration agency has announced.

The funding initiative, which is run by the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA), in partnership with the Department for Energy and Climate Change and the Department for Communities and Local Government, is intended to help schemes develop infrastructure that will link them to new and existing low carbon energy sources.

Greenwich in south-east London was awarded the largest cash boost, receiving £3 million for a number of schemes in the borough.

Sir Bob Kerslake, chief executive of the HCA, said: "The range of projects that we have been able to allocate money to shows there is a real appetite for this kind of infrastructure and the benefits it brings to communities and the industry as a whole."
