The conference, billed as the first of its kind to bring together developers, lenders and representatives from the construction industry to explore the latest issues, legislation, products and funding availability. Organised by BuildStore Financial Services, the self build, renovation and conversion mortgage specialists, the conference was held at the National Self Build & Renovation Centre in Swindon on May 29th.
The housing market is now a major priority for the Government and the publication of its Housing Strategy last year presents a unique opportunity for developers to take advantage of the release of public sector land, the push to bring empty properties into use, and the New Homes Bonus Scheme for councils.
The Government is keen to see regional developers play a bigger role in providing new homes, and with commercial lending making a strong comeback through BuildStore, there are real opportunities for developers to profit in the current market.
