The Conservative Conference 2017 and rumours are rife across the industry this morning that Theresa May will unveil plans for a major council housebuilding programme. If correct, this is a very exciting time for house builders and anybody with a professional interest in the housing sector.
Both The Sun and the BBC have made this a headline story, adding more weight to the argument.
If sources are to be believed, it would be the first time in decades that a prime minister has announced a major council housing boom. Could this be the beginning of the end of the housing crisis?
Buildingspecifier will be reporting. Don’t miss out!
