Welcome to EG's Collaborators
The industry is already becoming the scapegoat for the nation’s housing and welfare woes, and there was no shortage of opportunistic politicians at this year’s party conferences looking to resonate with public discontent via a dig at developers and investors.
- Who is going to come up with a private rented sector model which is genuinely affordable for people renting out of necessity?
- Who is going to help cater for the huge need for affordable retirement living?
- If the sector doesn’t come up with solutions to the nation’s housing problems, it becomes very easy to be subjected to criticism.
However, the industry also needs to get better at communicating the enormous contribution it already makes to the UK’s economy and environment.
EG's The Collaborators celebrates some of the best those contributions.
