Episode 2 with Dave Sheridan, Executive Chairman at ilke Homes

Public land should be reserved exclusively for factory-built homes in a bid to create jobs across the North and to stoke new investment into tech and innovation, the boss of leading modular housing manufacturer ilke Homes has said.

Dave Sheridan, executive chairman at ilke Homes, called on ministers to be “proactive in bringing forward land and designating land exclusively for factory-built homes” to help accelerate the pace of housing procurement and delivery in the UK, which will be pivotal to any post-COVID-19 recovery plans.

Sheridan said that housing associations have a key role to play in using their own funds and their own land and should be encouraged to collaborate closely with Homes England and other stakeholders.

The government has previously introduced policies to support the uptake of the modern methods of construction (MMC). The Accelerated Construction programme provides investment to help organisations and businesses build homes on former public sector land, with the government stating they were “focusing on MMC” to help build an additional 32,000 homes.

“Because we can build a home at twice the speed of traditional construction, the cashflow can be generated in half the time and the delivery of the homes the country needs can be faster,” he said.
