Comment on the Chancellor Phillip Hammond’s Budget Statement

The lack of housing that is affordable is the biggest challenge for a generation.

Mix Developments welcomes the £44bn commitment for housing and stamp duty relief for first-time buyers outlined by the Chancellor today. However, we are calling for some of this funding to be targeted to SMEs, particularly those who are geared to deliver affordable housing.

If the Government wants to solve the affordable housing crisis quickly, it should ring-fence funding for SMEs so we can play our part in helping a generation get the affordable homes they deserve.
