Beleaguered house builders got most of what they called for from the Chancellor as he unveiled the latest attempt to kick-start the industry.

The Budget delivered a long overdue £250m FirstBuy aid package for first time buyers that Government claimed would support 50,000 construction jobs.

George Osborne also unveiled plans to release large tracts of land with planning consents through public land auctions and promised big planning reforms.

These include a presumption to grant planning to sustainable housing developments and a pledge to force councils to handle applications within 12 months.

The Government will also consult over plans to allow commercial space to be converted to residential without the need for planning.

He also agreed to water down requirements to force builders to deliver zero carbon homes by 2016, saying the Government would now look at more realistic targets that didn’t make sites uneconomic.
