Elections will not be the end for property’s battle with politics

Concerns from property bosses over the local elections may have been mollified after Labour failed in its attempt to take key councils, but uncertainty still remains.

London’s mayor Sadiq Khan is at the halfway point in his term and is still falling short of his target of building 60,000 homes per year in the capital. The differing ways to hit that target will be central to discussions to debates between developers and newly elected local councillors will be key.  

Martin Bellginer, Ian Fletcher is director of policy at the British Property Federation; Dean Clifford, co-founder of central London residential developer Great Marlborough Estates; Martin Bellinger executive chairman of housing developer and contractor Guildmore and one of the founders of PRS developer Essential Living and EG’s London residential analyst Paul Wellman joined EG editor Damian Wild to discuss the battles ahead.
