With the triggering of Article 50 on 29 March 2017, the phoney war ended and several years of tough negotiations, with the attendant media speculation, now stretch out in front of the UK and EU27. Right now, the post-Brexit world may seem a very distant problem. It is business as usual; today’s land acquisition, tomorrow’s planning application.

Right now, the post-Brexit world may seem a very distant problem. It is business as usual; today’s land acquisition, tomorrow’s planning application.

But the property industry must always be long-term in its thinking and planning. Completely new industry structures, standards and regimes will have to be created which will affect the property sector for decades to come.

      • On planning, what process will replace the cumbersome requirements of the Environmental Impact Assessment Directive, and is there an opportunity to streamline the process so that we can speed up the planning system for larger development projects

 

      • On public sector bids, what might replace the overly bureaucratic OJEU process, and how can the new UK system be more streamlined and efficient?

 

      • On immigration, how should the new UK immigration system work to ensure that the property sector will still be able to recruit both the skilled and unskilled workers it needs from abroad to supplement its existing British workforce?

These are but three of the most obvious challenges. And right now, Government has no solutions to them and the myriad of other post-Brexit challenges. But it is open and welcoming to industry’s ideas, suggestions and advice.

So this is precisely the time for serious players in the property industry to think long-term and come forward to shape the new laws and regulations under which we will operate for the decades ahead.

Our Brexit Team is working with industry players right now on exactly these issues across the residential, retail, commercial, energy, waste and minerals sectors, working to shape the future.

“They voted to shape a brighter future for our country. They voted to leave the European Union and embrace the world. And they did so with their eyes open: accepting that the road ahead will be uncertain at times, but believing that it leads towards a brighter future for their children – and their grandchildren too.”
Prime Minister Theresa May, Lancaster House speech, 17 January 2017
