Min­is­ters urged to de­liver on build­ing

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE time has come for the Gov­ern­ment to de­liver on its house­build­ing ini­tia­tives with York­shire con­struc­tion lev­els con­tin­u­ing to fall in the three months to Septem­ber, says the lat­est RICS Con­struc­tion Mar­ket Sur­vey.

Lev­els of both pub­lic and pri­vate house­build­ing con­tin­ued to drop in the re­gion dur­ing the last quar­ter, as pres­sure mounts on the Gov­ern­ment to en­sure de­mand is met. A net bal­ance of 21 per cent more char­tered sur­vey­ors re­ported de­creases in pub­lic sec­tor hous­ing work­loads, while four per cent more re­spon­dents said pri­vate sec­tor projects had also fallen rather than risen. Mean­while, over­all con­struc­tion work­loads across York­shire dipped once again.
