Nigel Palmer, Managing Director From Linden Homes South West, Comments:

“We have worked extremely hard over the last five years to engage with all parties as well as the Conservative-led coalition, to advise how policy and initiatives work in practice in the housebuilding industry. That consultation work has enabled us to understand government priorities and be fully immersed in the NPPF reform, which is now starting to make headway.

“What the housebuilding industry now needs from the new Government is stability. Stability translates into certainty around planning reform, “home buyer enablers” on offer and the wider economy to help keep Britain building. We hope that this majority Government will command that level of guarantee and solidarity in the planning process to spur the delivery of much needed homes across the country.

“We recently issued ‘Housing our Nation – a Manifesto’ in a bid to inform the debate with our suggested actions to help ease the housing crisis. This six-stage manifesto lays out our recommended way forward to boost the UK’s housing supply. They are plans that our years of experience show will provide much-needed new homes but also new jobs, investment, economic growth and local facilities.

“We look forward to discussing these ideas with the newly elected government and will be inviting the new political figures to our sites to see for themselves how our homes are meeting housing needs on a local and national scale.”
