There’s a palpable sense of positivity in the high-value property industry about this week’s “Blue Budget.” Well, more so than usual for a Budget week. Gone are the tensions and fear-mongery that were default positions in the run-up to any financial announcement by the Coalition; instead there’s an expectation – albeit quite a woolly one – that the first “pure” Conservative Budget in over 18 years will deliver prime-friendly and pro-business policies that will help to stabilise the economy’s recovery.
A few policies have already been aired in pre-election banter:
- #Budget2016: A property industry wishlist from Belgravia February 24, 2016
- Predictions for the 2016 Autumn Statement November 22, 2016
- Brexit offers government a ‘chance to save face over SDLT fumble’ July 7, 2016
