“Following Theresa May’s Conservative Conference speech and this week’s Budget, housing is firmly at the forefront of Government policy. The Government recognises the scale of the challenge of delivering more homes and set out several proposals to boost both supply and demand. Their target to deliver 300,000 new homes a year by 2025 is certainly ambitious. The housebuilding industry is however already rising to the challenge – in the last four years the sector’s combined output has increased by 74%. However, the Chancellor also painted a gloomy picture for the UK’s macro-economic prospects as poor productivity and Brexit uncertainty impact GDP. It’s therefore important that investment in the housing market is maintained, not only to support first time buyers into home ownership, but to provide a much-needed boost to the wider economy.”

Karen Jones, HR Director at leading housebuilder Redrow, comments on the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy: “The Government’s recognition of the need to focus on grassroots recruitment through a number of avenues is to be applauded, and the introduction of the Levy will directly increase the number of businesses growing apprentice numbers across the UK. Technical skillsets, in particular in sectors such as construction, engineering and health and social care, are vital to the strength of UK PLC but are currently in short supply so this policy represents a significant step in the right direction.
