Tomorrow sees Chancellor George Osborne deliver his second Budget and not surprisingly the Leicester Mercury
was keen to find out what different companies around the city, representing all kinds of industries and sectors, were hoping for.
When approached for views on how the Chancellor might help stimulate the commercial property market, we went to client Westleigh Developments
and sought their wish-list.
You can read the views of Matt Moore, Property Director at property developer Westleigh, on page 17 of today’s bumper business supplement or CLICK HERE

Don’t forget you can follow the Budget live on the BBC website tomorrow
(and on many other news websites) - The Chancellor is expected to make his Budget statement from 12.30pm.
Will George help the commercial property market in tomorrow's Budget or won't he?
EDIT: Afternoon of Wednesday 23rd March - Reaction to the Budget:
In response to the question posed in the title of this blog - not an awful lot! At least not at first glance. There are a number of reforms earmarked for the planning regime which sound interesting, which on paper could make life for developers a little easier. But as with all these things, whilst they sound very nice, how long will it take these new rules to kick in? Hopefully not “a number of years”, which the Chancellor seemed to say about a number of his proposals today.
Keep watching for the blog for more ‘post-Budget’ comments from our clients.
