Who we are and what we do

The APPG for SME Housebuilders is a cross-party forum within Parliament. Its purpose is to examine the operations of SME house builders in the UK, review the regulatory environment affecting the market, looking at ways of improving the delivery of new homes, and making recommendations on how Parliament can improve regulation to deliver more effective house building by SMEs.

The APPG for SME Housebuilders has regular meetings within Parliament or online to discuss latest developments in the residential property sector, as well as producing regular reports to help improve the regulatory environment to benefit SME Housebuilders in the UK. 

The group is currently chaired by Andrew Lewer MP.

The Secretariat for this APPG is Edwin de Silva, with support from Cowgills and Aldermore.
