There’s a cautious welcome for investment in housing, construction and infrastructure in Chancellor Philip Hammond’s Autumn Statement.
Spending plans included a £2.3bn housing infrastructure fund to help provide 100,000 new homes in high-demand areas and £1.4bn for 40,000 extra affordable homes.
Another £1.1bn was set aside for local transport improvements. There are potential multi-sector and local economic benefits depending on the details of the plans.

The leading B2B title Commercial News Media has featured our hugely successful multi-disciplinary showcase at the iconic Gherkin skyscraper in London.
It has featured a picture of our Managing Director Bill McAndrew, Director of Surveying London Gareth Pryce, Director of General Practice Ian Lee and Operations Director Sam Rix as well as a full story about our showcase and services.
It includes details about our new strapline '#Professional Solutions by Design' and our newly structured directorates:
• Building Surveying
As a leading independent property surveying practice, we unveiled our new corporate structure and strapline at the Gherkin skyscraper in London.
We held the invitation-only showcase in the exclusive Searcys private members’ club at the top of the iconic London landmark.
Our Managing Director Bill McAndrew and Director of Surveying London Gareth Pryce outlined our multidisciplinary services and explained the concept behind our new motto, ‘Professional Solutions by Design’.
What a great evening at the Gherkin to showcase our comprehensive range of multi-disciplinary services and new strapline, Professional Solutions by Design.
We welcomed guests to a presentation and canapés at Searcys restaurant on the 38th floor of the iconic London landmark before heading to the 40th floor bar at the very tip of the building to enjoy drinks and a breathtaking 360 degrees view of the city.
Many thanks to all who came and helped make it such a success - and many thanks too to all of our staff who worked so hard to organise the event.
Our latest Surveying the Scene column has hit today's Portsmouth News.
In the latest of a series of columns by our Director Ian Lee, it examines the reputation surveyors have for caution - and why this is a good thing for all concerned.
As a twice former chairman of the Portsmouth Property Association (PPA) and Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (FRICS) with many years of experience, Ian is extremely well placed to offer expert comment and informed professional advice in a wide range of areas.
New figures have given fresh cause for optimism in the wake of the historic Brexit vote as we head into September.
There was a pick-up in house price growth over August, according to Nationwide. And confidence among UK consumers also improved during the month, another survey has suggested.
The findings follow encouraging economic data, a fall in unemployment, statistics showing gains for manufacturing and the Bank of England’s recent interest rate cut.
We’ve had a very busy August so far as demand for our comprehensive range of surveys and property related services has continued to remain strong.
Sometimes, quite naturally, business can slow a little in August as people head off on holiday or place any plans on hold until September.
However, this August has seen the pace of growth continue unabated; perhaps Brexit, the interest rate cut and the economic climate may be playing a role.
