  • Plans for restarting the housing market unveiled

Restrictions on the property market and construction sector, created to combat the spread of coronavirus, are being relaxed.

To kickstart the housing market, Jenrick has set out a number of measures aiming to boost the number of homes being built for the future.

Housing secretary Robert Jenrick has also announced a series of measures created to get the country working on homes, including allowing builders to agree more flexible construction site hours, allowing councils and developers to publicise planning applications through social media instead of having to rely on posters and leaflets, and supporting smaller developers by allowing them to defer payments to local councils.

It stressed the relaxation of the rules could only work under strict social distancing and other measures created to combat the virus. These include flexibility on construction site working hours to allow arrival times of builders to be staggered, making social distancing more attainable and easing pressure of public transport.

Jenrick has also sought to get the house building industry back on its feet with a Safe Working Charter launched to help sites work again with new rules created to protect builders' health.
