Building our Future

The property industry's offer to the new Government

Ahead of this year's general election, we launched our manifesto 'Building our Future'. This manifesto sets out the property industry’s offer to the new Government across four pillars key pillars.

  1. Building for Productivity and Growth
  2. Building More Homes
  3. Building Stronger Town Centre
  4. Building the Green Economy

Our industry invests hundreds of billions of pounds each year to rebuild and renew the UK’s buildings and public spaces – representing 7% of the country’s economy. Much of this money comes from the funds who manage our pensions and savings or insure our homes and belongings whether here in the UK or overseas.

With the right policy and regulatory framework we can do much more: invest more of our money in the priorities that matter to local communities, create more wealth and also deliver safer, healthier, places for people to live, work and relax.
