British Property Federation (BPF)
The voice of the UK real estate industry
BECG works with the BPF by feeding into consultations, responding to Government proposals and tackling the issues of importance to the property industry.
Our Director Jenny Riddell-Carpenter sits on the Communication Committee having supported BPF’s engagement on Brexit, the Industrial Strategy, and supporting proactive engagement with other stakeholders.
BPF works in partnership with governments to deliver:
- Economic growth: our Toscafund research shows that real estate represents £1,667bn of UK assets and contributes £95.6bn GVA to the economy each year.
- Essential infrastructure: the breadth of our industry encompasses homes, offices, retail and leisure, stations, airports and ports. The boundary between real estate and infrastructure is increasingly meaningless and both are essential. The sector is also intrinsic to the development of social infrastructure, such as hospitals, GP practices and schools.
- Great places: our members make great places for people to live, work and relax. Doing this well can make a huge contribution to building sustainable communities and increasing social cohesion, as well as increasing productivity through promoting well-being.
