Headline News

This year’s South West Review in Bath focused on the growing confidence which has returned to the market, resulting in the most active development the city has seen. Residential and student housing sectors are both growth areas, with demand for city centre apartments outstripping supply. As a retail centre, Bath remains extremely potent, offering the full retail and leisure experience, which is a must in today’s challenging times for the retail sector.

Confidence in both the market and wider economy picked up strongly in 2013 and we enter 2014 with strong momentum. We expect solid growth to continue this year, with a transition away from a consumer-led recovery to one supported by rising business investment and exports. The regional pattern will favour areas with strength in the knowledge based, high value-add sectors which will drive growth and in this regard, the South West is well placed.
