We’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone here at Gateway.
Rather than post out traditional Christmas cards, we’re able to save paper and do our bit for the environment with a seasonal message in ‘Gateway Today’. The financial savings are put to good use too, making up part of Gateway’s annual donation to local homeless charity, HARP. HARP supports adults without a permanent home or who are at risk of losing their home through a wide range of services and partnerships.
2017 has been a busy year for Gateway and the property industry. We look back at some key events.
Property and politics came together throughout 2017, with stamp duty changes (yes, again) being a key feature of the Autumn Budget. Earlier, in June, the tragic events at Grenfell Tower, West London, brought fire safety in flats to the government and nation’s attention. The year also saw the Build to Rent sector emerge in the UK, with the first tenants moving into the East Village development in Stratford (formerly London 2012’s Athletes Village).
