RIBA responds to upcoming general election

RIBA President, Alan Jones, has responded to upcoming general election.

29 October 2019

RIBA President, Alan Jones, said:

“This election will have profound implications for architects and the construction sector. Architects have a leading role to play in tackling the climate emergency, improving the safety and quality of buildings and spaces, and addressing the housing crisis through the development of vibrant, prosperous communities. But none of this will be possible if uncertainty continues to make the UK a less attractive place to work, study and live. All political parties must now set out a comprehensive and realistic vision for the future of our country, that addresses the UK’s future relationship with the EU and other pressing issues facing us today.”
