UKAA Webinar: Lifting BTR in the halls of power; how the sector can elevate itself with policy-makers Presented by Arcadis

Thursday 1st October 2020

It is clear that the BTR sector has an important part to play in solving the UK’s housing challenges, providing good quality, well managed accommodation at a variety of price points.

The sector’s objectives and the value it brings are not always consistently understood across local and central government creating fragmented, and sometimes even hostile, approaches to BTR in policy-making.

In this Arcadis webinar, with Lord Gavin Barwell, (Minister of State for Housing and Planning 2016/2017), we explored how the BTR sector can elevate its message in the halls of power, and in turn, fulfil the potential we know it has in making a difference to housing provision in the UK.
