Member-only insight, events and influence

Property Community

As property costs continue to rise, it is increasingly important to identify opportunities to minimize costs, be it freezing business rates, securing longer-term taxation reform and improving relationships with landlords. Powers are also increasingly being devolved locally and retailers are working to derive more value from local partnerships.

The Property Community gives members the opportunity to shape the debate and tackle the issues collaboratively, effectively influencing government, landlords and the broader property landscape.
