‘This is a monumental moment’: RIBA responds to General Election result

Read our response to the result of the 2024 UK General Election.

05 July 2024

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has today, Friday 5 July 2024, responded to the result of yesterday’s UK General Election. 

RIBA President Muyiwa Oki said: 

“This is a monumental moment for the UK – and an opportunity for Labour to prove it will deliver on the changes it has committed to. 

Its manifesto doesn’t have all the answers, but it shows ambition – not least to tackle the housing crisis by boosting the delivery of high-quality homes and fixing our broken planning system.  

The time for bold, decisive action to deliver a safer, greener and more equitable built environment is now.   

We look forward to working together over the coming years – bringing architects’ expertise to the table to solve the complex challenges our country faces.”
