Yesterday I was in town so went along to the London Constructing Excellence Club’s ‘Pre-Election Special’ event which featured Noble Francis of the Construction Products Association and Abdul Choudhury of the RICS Policy team. Here’s a collection of tweets and links which will give you a flavour of what was said.
The meeting operated under Chatham House Rules which means that people were not to be identified with their organisations and were thereby able to express personal opinions without being quoted, but Noble and Abdul were happy for us to share their talks and we deliberately didn’t identify any of the other participants.
Highlights of the events included some cracking soundbites from Noble Francis on what a pickle the UK housing market is in, and Abdul Choudhury setting out the RICS’s Property in Politics campaign to influence the upcoming election by getting the political parties to commit to certain policies if they are elected. If anyone is elected, that is. I’ve included links to useful further information, including how you can come along to future London Constructing Excellence Events.
Here’s the storify of the evening. I’d be interested in your views on some of the contributions.
