The Build-to-Rent (BtR) sector continues to grow apace in the UK, with rising demand for rental housing. This is good news for developers, but to break new ground in BtR first requires an ability to juggle persisting economic challenges, and to overcome significant resistance at local and national levels of government. In this context, a blueprint for success may lie in collaboration with sector partners, both to leverage support for BtR and refine a future model of best practice.The Build-to-Rent (BtR) sector continues to grow apace in the UK, with rising demand for rental housing.
