Review by Mareika Gray.
According to a report this week in industry publication ‘Housebuilder’, leading industry bodies including the Home Builders Federation, Federation of Master Builders and the Builders Merchants Federation have called on the next government to put housing and construction at the top of the agenda over the next 5 years.
Established in 2009, the Get Britain Building alliance believe that putting a priority on housing and construction will create jobs and growth throughout the UK, and have launched an initiative called Get Britain Building 2020 which sets out recommendations which they hope will be delivered over the next 5 years.
The recommendations include:
Brian Berry, Chief Executive of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), said:“We have put forward a range of sound actions and recommendations for the next Government to ensure it fully realises the potential of our sector and allows us to help deliver its aims of increasing the pace of economic growth and job creation, and reducing our carbon emissions. We are calling on the next Government to put housing and construction at the heart of its five year plan.”
Chief Executive of Conroy Brook, Richard Conroy, commented: “As a small / medium sized developer we fully support this campaign. It is imperative to keep Britain building as it is vital to the UK economy and knowing that the government is on board will provide the confidence needed to invest and create new homes and jobs for our communities.”
