BSA comments on the Autumn Statement

23 November 2016

Commenting on the 2016 Autumn Statement, Robin Fieth, BSA Chief Executive said:

“We welcome the recognition given to the importance of infrastructure in housebuilding with the announcement of a £2.3 billion housing infrastructure fund in today’s Autumn Statement. BSA research shows that the main reason why people oppose new houses being built in their area is because of concerns about increased pressure on local infrastructure. This fund should contribute to alleviating these concerns and support an increase in housebuilding. We look forward to seeing the detail in the upcoming Housing White Paper.”
