The housing market is definitely on the move

There have recently been a number of articles and topical reports highlighting that the housing market is continuing its recovery with increased confidence which is great news, such articles have been;

"Spring time bounce"

"Planning Approval boost"

"House sales record three year peak"

"Win win for house prices as 1million prepare to buy"

"Budget 2013 announces "Help to Buy"

"Up to 10,000 new homes will improve the rental market using the £1billion Build to Rent Fund"

"Still aspiring", 79% of British adults would like to be home-owners in 10 years' time

Gareth Davies, Greenbelt Group's Business Development Director comments;

"The Government is still firmly behind a package of measures including "Help to Buy" that George Osbourne described as a "dramatic intervention". Their intention to get the house building industry going is evident. With the level of new build completions trailing well behind the Governments targets, the steps being taken are very welcome and will benefit the whole house building supply/services chain.
These measures along with our developer clients trading results announcements demonstrate a clear picture of improved market conditions and an increased level of new development outlets, more output and more choice.

Greenbelt Group can add to these good news stories which show a direct correlation to our developer client's uplift in activity.
Greenbelts solutions and services for open space adoption are definitely being embraced as competitive and commercially attractive exit strategies are being sought by developers across the UK.
