BPF reacts to Michael Gove’s appointment as DLUHC Secretary of State

Melanie Leech chief executive of the British Property Federation reacts to Michael Gove’s appointment as Secretary of State at DLUHC:

“Michael Gove will be able to hit the ground running and we look forward to working with him again. The property industry is a critical partner on levelling-up and by unlocking investment we can deliver the changes we need to see in our communities up and down the country. This summer we lost vital time on delivering on the Government’s agenda and urgently need a consistent and steady hand on the key issues of the day – housing supply, regeneration and net zero – which are all critical to the UK’s growth ambitions and international competitiveness.”
