The Chancellor announced in the Spring Budget 2024 further changes that could affect properties in Peterborough with a commitment to build one million new homes. The goal is to construct one million new homes by the end of the Parliament term. This includes areas such as Canary Wharf and Blackpool, but also Cambridge. These extra houses in Cambridge and Canary Wharf could significantly affect the Peterborough housing market.

  • Household Support Fund

The HSF, also known as the Household Support Fund, is set to continue for at least another 6 months. This program started in 2021 with food banks and warm spaces. It was designed to support families with low income. Therefore, the extension of this funding could help Peterborough landlords with low-income families as tenants.
