The WMCA said the first tranche of money had helped kick-start homes across the region, including at Culwell Street in Wolverhampton.

The new tranche will help with the restoration and conversion of unique heritage buildings into new homes in town centres, it said.

It will also support mixed-use developments around “key transport hubs and major brownfield housing projects”, the authority added.

Overall, the WMCA is targeting 215,000 new homes across the region by 2031.
