Finance in the Midlands construction sector is heading in the right direction following a sea change over the past 12 months, regional industry leaders have said.
Leading property and construction figures from across the West Midlands reported they are seeing a greater appetite from banks and finance houses to invest in development projects.
The Birmingham offices of accountancy firm Moore Stephens, and property and construction consultancy Rider Levett Bucknall, are working in partnership with key figures in the property and construction industry to support and deliver best practice and lobby for the sector.
The firms held the third of a series of round table events which brought together contractors, developers, financiers and lawyers to discuss issues facing the sector, including funding, planning and the skills gap.
The round table was chaired by Dr Louise Brooke-Smith from planning consultancy Brooke Smith Planning, and immediate past global president of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
