Chris Stewart takes chair at property federation

Stewart is expected to say: “A new real estate forum that brings together the finance and economy briefs, alongside communities, planning, housing, heritage and the environment will be of huge benefit.

“It will allow government and industry a direct means of communication; one that ensures policy decisions are made with an informed view of the markets and in line with the country’s ambition.”
