The Society held its Annual Conference at the Geroge Hotel, Hathersage, Derbyshire, over the weekend 14-15 May, 2005.
The Government has announced that it has appointed Sir Michael Latham to review the workings of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 following representations from various trade bodies in the Industry. More details can be found on the DTI website. A number of members of the Society are on the Adjudication Panels of the bodies listed in the Press Announcement as having been contracted by Sir Michael. The consultation period is rumoured as being very short.
We regret to record the death on 7th December of Brian Eggleston, one of our long-standing members. For an obituary, click here.
