GreenSquare has thrown its support behind the ‘Homes for Britain’ initiative, which presents a united voice for the housing sector and aims to put housing at the top of the political agenda.
Launched at the recent Conservative Party conference in Birmingham, Homes for Britain wants to demonstrate that investment in housing can not only bring economic benefits but also social rewards to the country.
David Ashmore, Chief Executive of GreenSquare, commented: “Housing really is vital for achieving both economic growth and building strong communities. It is estimated that every £1 spent puts £3 back into the wider economy and each new home built creates 1.5 jobs, so it is important to ensure that it remains one of the Government’s top priorities.
“Homes for Britain is a fantastic initiative and by bringing together all those concerned with housing it will have enough support to urge politicians to use the UK’s housing crisis as a catalyst for growth.”
Homes for Britain is made up of a 40-strong coalition of house builders, housing associations, architects, housing professionals, homelessness campaigners and private landlords. It is working in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Housing, Crisis, Homebuilders Federation, Royal Institute of British Architects, and the Residential Landlords Association.
