Stonewater’s reaction to the election result

We welcome a majority government and hope that a more certain political landscape will now see housing rise to the top of the domestic agenda.


Many manifesto promises were made towards tackling the nation’s affordable housing crisis and delivering the number of homes this country so desperately needs. It will take vision, partnership and real commitment across government, local authorities and our sector to tackle the challenge.

In a wider sense, we also hope to see an end to the division and uncertainty that has dominated recent times. I’m sure that businesses and communities alike will all benefit from renewed clarity, co-operation and unity.

We look forward to working with the new government at all levels, and with our local MPs, to help shape the detail of housing policy and be part of the solution to provide the affordable homes that are so badly needed, by so many.

Nicholas Harris, Chief Executive, Stonewater
