BPF tells government to help property industry

The British Property Federation (BPF) has urged the government to help the property market and people buying houses for sale in the UK in its forthcoming Spending Review.

Today (October 15th 2010), the BPF said that having a healthy property market will help the UK's economy and asked the government to consider giving incentives for development to boost fiscal growth.

The BPF also called for sustainable housing projects to be streamlined, which will encourage more developers to build environmentally-friendly houses for sale in the UK.

Chief executive of the BPF Liz Peace said: "This would allow the industry to get on with its core task of creating good-quality, economically viable places and allow for efficiencies in government as well."

The Green Property Alliance also released a report called Establishing the Ground Rules for Property today, which calls to establish a set of metrics to be used by tenants and property owners to measure greenhouse gas emissions and water waste levels in homes.  ADNFCR-1222-ID-800119664-ADNFCR
