The BPF welcomed the announcement and the Government’s continued no-nonsense approach to delivering the findings of the Montague Review.
Ian Fletcher, director of policy at the British Property Federation, said: “The bids show the depth and breadth of interest from investors, to housing associations, house builders and construction companies. There are some big names, but also smaller innovative companies, and it all bodes well for round two.
“The further members of the task force have an excellent breath of experience and skills and under the stewardship of Andrew Stanford should act as a good support function within Government for local authorities and this burgeoning build-to-let sector."
