Housing ‘central’ to recovery, says minister
Housing minister Chris Pincher has said that housing will be “central” to the economy’s recovery from the coronavirus crisis.
Speaking to the Digital Housing Week conference last week, he added, “This is an important moment for us to put our shoulder to the wheel get behind the housing sector in all its aspects. When we boost the housing sector, we boost the whole economy. The mission of us all must be to build a new Britain out of this pandemic.”
The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government is trying to work with a “digital mentality”, he added, including a focus on modern methods of construction.
