The comments made by Christopher Pincher, the Housing Minister, on 26 November 2021.
I am absolutely delighted that the first people to benefit from First Homes include a nurse and police officer. They have been helped to own a home in the community where they have worked tirelessly during the pandemic to keep people safe.
This scheme is putting local people first and creating opportunities for young people and families to feel the sense of pride that comes with homeownership.
We are determined to help more people on to the housing ladder and are providing significant funding to regenerate derelict land, deliver new homes and create prosperous local communities across the country.
