Influential housing organisations form alliance
Some of the UK's largest property organisations have announced a new strategic alliance which will see a greater degree of coordination in addressing key housing issues.
The Property Alliance is claiming that it wishes to give the commercial property sector a way to voice its concerns about issues affecting the industry.
The four members involved in the scheme include the British Council for Offices, the British Property Federation, the Investment Property Forum and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics).
Chief Executive of Rics, Louis Armstrong, commented that the Property Alliance could play a vital role in developing communication between bodies and improving house price research.
"This alliance will strengthen the commercial property sector's ability to demonstrate its crucial role in the UK's economy," he said.
He went on to say that the alliance will be able to better tackle some of the major challenges facing Britain today including climate change and the relationships between the planning system and economic and social objectives.
