Extension of Permitted Development rights to be applauded

Ben Habib (pictured), CEO of First Property Group comments on the decision to extend Permitted Development Rights in the UK…

The Government should be applauded for taking this decision to extend Permitted Development Rights, affirming its commitment to tackling the housing crisis in an effective, sustainable way. 

So far the investments made in these redundant properties by businesses such as ours have created much-needed homes, boosted the construction sector, generated substantial returns for investors and helped drive the economy forwards. 

Continuing a policy that has had such a positive effect in so many areas can only be seen as good news, both for businesses and individuals.
