A regional build-to-rent (BTR) pipeline of almost 50,000 homes will see global investors propel the government’s Levelling Up agenda this year.

Developers seeking value in regional markets have 20,000 BTR homes under construction and a further 30,000 with plans approved. This development pipeline eclipses London, which sits at just under 30,000 homes under construction and consented.

There was a record £3.1bn invested in regional BTR in 2021. It was the first-time regional investment exceeded London investment, with 69% more capital committed to top regional cities.
