A Federation of Master Builders (FMB) survey, the first one to be conducted since the Brexit vote, indicates the UK's decision to leave the EU has not yet impacted SME house builders' workloads.
Two-thirds (69 per cent) of businesses surveyed said they have not yet seen any changes to their business post-Brexit, and only a quarter have seen any negative effect on their projects, attributing this more to delayed decisions, rather than project cancellations.
With most SMEs saying it's "business as usual", Brian Berry, FMB Chief Executive, said the study should not "paint an overly rosy picture of the situation facing SME house builders".
"The barriers to building that existed prior to the referendum are still hindering delivery, and as the housing crisis continues to be a pressing concern, the need to empower smaller developers must be a priority for May's Government," he said.
