We need a more diverse house building industry which includes more SME housebuilders

FMB comment on the Government’s response to the Select Committee’s report into Modern Methods of Construction.


The Government’s response to the Select Committee’s report that Modern Methods of Construction is just one part of the Government’s wider housing diversification strategy is a welcome recognition that it isn’t the silver bullet to the current housing crisis.

What is needed is a more diverse house building industry which includes more SME housebuilders.

One of the barriers for SME housebuilders is access to finance so it’s pleasing to see recognition in the Government’s response for the work the FMB has done with UK Finance to help SMEs improve access to finance.

The FMB looks forward to continuing to work with the Housing Minister to help break down some of the other barriers SME house builders face such as access to land and blockages in the planning system.
