Scottish Property Federation comments on vote to leave the EU

24 Jun 2016

David Melhuish, director of the Scottish Property Federation, comments: “At this stage we are looking for reassurance from the UK and Scottish Governments for investors and the markets. The real estate industry supports economic growth, creates jobs and delivers great places, and relies on investment for this. The priority in Scotland must remain on growing the economy and delivering the infrastructure our businesses and communities need.  

“We note the Prime Minister’s call to include the devolved governments in the process of Article 50 negotiations and we believe it is important that we understand what the future relationship with the EU will be before we consider any further constitutional questions.”
