- The appointment of Theresa May as the new Prime Minister has also triggered ministerial changes relevant to housing, planning and the property sector.
Sajid Javed, formerly Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, is the new Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.
Gavin Barwell, MP for Croydon Central, has become Minister for Housing and Planning.
Furthermore, just before becoming PM Mrs May said the UK ‘needs to do far more to get more houses built’, adding: “Unless we deal with the housing deficit, we will see house prices keep on rising. Young people will find it even harder to afford their own home.
“The divide between those who inherit wealth and those who don’t will become more pronounced. And more and more of the country’s money will go into expensive housing instead of more productive investments that generate more economic growth.’’

- Stiles Harold Williams were delighted to conclude the sale of Russell House last month.
There was very strong interest for the freehold of this Grade A 34,000 sq ft office building situated less than a five minute walk from the seafront in a sought-after city centre location.
Prior to the sale we made an application for residential conversion under Permitted Development Rights.
There was strong interest from both residential developers and office investors/occupiers. The property was also ideal for a variety of other uses (STP) including student accommodation or medical and interest was seen from these sectors too.
Stiles Harold Williams were confident there would be a lot of interest in Russell House, however the amount of bids exceeded everyone’s expectations.
The property was sold to a residential developer, which will mean the future of Russell House will now play a part in assisting the continued housing shortage in Brighton and Hove. However it also means 34,000 sq ft of office space has been removed from the market.

- Property consultants Stiles Harold Williams are seeking further sites for Subway® in Greater London, Hampshire, East Sussex, West Sussex and the Isle of Wight (South Coast territory).
SHW have worked alongside Subway® for some 15 years now and have been involved in more than 250 transactions.
Subway® are the world’s largest sandwich franchisee and SHW are the recommended agent in the search areas.
With some 270 stores in Greater London and 100+ in the South Coast territory there is still significant potential for many more acquisitions.

- In a recent speech, SHW’s Associate Planner Alex Bateman stated that areas outside Brighton and Hove – particularly Eastbourne – would be leading the way in terms of providing future capacity, especially given the geographical limitations of the former.
Only a few days later, Eastbourne Borough Council have put out their ‘Call for Sites’ for residential or commercial development – reiterating the trend identified by the SHW Planning Team.
