Get Britain Building: A Golden Opportunity

The UK has a golden opportunity to build for the future and in doing so, create jobs, growth, a balanced economy and a greener environment. The UK must invest in new and existing housing if we are to compete in the fast growing global economy.

Solve the housing crisis within a generation

Successful delivery of major projects, such as the Olympics and Crossrail provide evidence that the UK has the ability and ingenuity to deliver when it matters. We call upon the next Government to place the delivery of new and improved housing, non-domestic buildings and infrastructure at the heart of their long term plans and ensure that the housing crisis is solved within a generation.
