The regional picture
over the second quarter shows Scotland and the North West in particular are
beginning to see a resurgence in new construction activity. Growth in Scotland
increased by 17.6%, the North West by 16.8%, and the West Midlands followed
suit with an increase of 9.0%. This implies that the major urban centres
outside London – Greater Manchester, the Birmingham conurbation and Scotland’s
central belt – are beginning to see the bounce back that had previously been
concentrated in the South East. London however still represents around a
quarter of all UK construction activity, and while the South East was
relatively flat in construction terms, the East of England saw an increase of
23.0% - the single strongest increase in the regions.
