Speaking up on affordable housing in Property Week

Bramble Estates director Brian Culank appears in this week’s issue of Property Week making the case for selling sites to housing associations.

In an opinion piece titled Busting prejudices about affordable housing, Brian once again tackles landowners’ preconceptions about what it means to sell your site to a housing association rather than a private developer.

Over the past month, the government has ended the controversial Help to Buy scheme and launched its £5bn homebuilding fund, which will be available to both small private housebuilders and housing associations,” Brian writes.

The government seems to have realised that the only way it stands any chance of meeting its one million homes per year target by 2020 is by supporting a broad mix of tenures.

But if the UK is going to build more homes for rent, with housing associations playing an active role, some landowners will need to ditch their prejudices.

As director of Bramle Estates, Brian is well placed to offer his opinion on this topic.

Bramble Estates is a residential property developer established in 1994 with expertise in land acquisition, planning and value engineering. This enables it to deliver projects from a variety of land assets, the majority of which are sold on to housing associations for afforable housing developments.
