Responding to the appointment of Greg Clark MP as Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Alan Ward, Chairman of the Residential Landlords Association has said:
“The RLA looks forward to working with the new Secretary of State in what will be a challenging but vital portfolio.
“As the only housing tenure that is growing, supporting and encouraging the army of individuals that make up the vast bulk of the country’s landlords will be critical to Mr Clark meeting his ambitions for housing.
“Key to this will be a pro-growth regulation, planning and taxation system that provides the safe, legal and secure homes to rent the RLA has long been calling for.”
The RLA represents almost 20,000 private sector residential landlords in England and Wales.
Details of the RLA’s Policy recommendations can be found in its manifesto for the sector available at www.rla.org.uk/manifesto
