A guide to Property Marketing in Essex
Construction is often the go-to solution for a government when they attempt to revitalise the economy after an economic crisis. There are no signs that the current government has plans for anything to the contrary. The method is tried and tested. Therefore anticipation is high among many businesses in the property sector that at least some investment will be heading their way in the near future.
The cross party Local Government Association has recently submitted a report petitioning the current national government to build an additional 100,000 new homes per year. The intention is to further improve the chances of a successful restart of the economy after its shuttering from Covid-19. This report named – ‘Delivery of council housing: a stimulus package post-pandemic’ – details the economic benefits such a national project would have. With many local governments petitioning for a rise in spending centred on the construction industry. Those in the industry are now positioning themselves to be be the recipients of such a windfall. It is important to promote your business now so that it can be noticed in an area of already high competition.
Recovering from the downturn
The government is working on multiple avenues to prevent the economy from contracting for an extended period of time. Construction is one area specifically that has received a lot of attention. Many new policies are already being implemented to give the industry a much required boost.
One such initiative that has already been announced is the governments intention to extend planning permission deadlines. Planning permissions normally expire within 3 years if work on site has not started. Any planning permissions that would have expired after the implementation of the nations covid-19 lockdown have automatically been granted an extension to the 1st April 2021. This policy has already prevented the planning permission on hundreds of projects nationwide from expiring. This includes 400 residential permissions in the process of providing over 24,000 new houses that would have otherwise expired at the end of June.
The introduction of new measures to permanently allow the Planning Inspectorate (PINS) use of more than a single procedure simultaneously will allow appeals to occur at a much faster rate. Hearings, inquiries and written representations will now be reviewed in tandem alongside planning appeals. With appeals being dealt with at a much faster pace, this will provide construction companies with extended timeframes, allowing the introduction of flexible working hours on site. Staggering builders arrival times will allow for better social distancing both on site and public transport by reducing number using services at any one time.
On top of this financial support has been announced to support firms and ensure they can continue tooperate. At least £330 billion of loans and guarantees have been pledged so far. Self assessment payments have also been pushed back. This are now due in 2021, providing immediate relief in a sector where many are self-employed.
The government is clearly providing support to a sector that has proven itself to be vital to economic growth time and again. Therefore many in the industry are now attempting to position themselves in an advantageous positions to reap the benefits of this support.
