Landmark Information, the leading provider of information to the UK property market, has hosted a special pre-election webinar to compare the major political party manifestos regarding brownfield development, urban development and housing.
The webinar, which was led by Chartered Geologist and SiLC Paul Nathanail, focused on preparing delegates for the challenges and opportunities the new Government will pose. The webinar compared all major political party manifestos to determine what the future of property development, redevelopment, planning and housing may look like, with a focus on brownfield land-related pledges.
Paul, who is the Managing Director of Land Quality Management Ltd and also chairs his local Neighbourhood Forum, also discussed what has changed in relation to Previously Developed Land (PDL) since the 2017 General Election.
Confirms Paul Nathanail: “The major political parties agree that we need to build more homes across the country but many local authorities are struggling to meet their housing targets over the next decade to ensure enough affordable houses are delivered. The Landmark webinar is an ideal opportunity to fully understand what each manifesto means in terms of their commitment to brownfield development.”
Adds Chris Loaring, Managing Director (Legal), Landmark Information: “By hosting the free webinar, we’ve provided a plain-speaking, clear interpretation of all political party’s plans with regards to brownfield redevelopment. Brownfield sites will play a big part of the changing urban landscape, to reflect societal needs, and so it’s important to understand policies for the next five years and beyond.”
