UEPC holds General Assembly, Board of Directors and Joint Committee meetings in Brussels
UEPC members visited Brussels on 13-14 May for the General Assembly, Board of Directors and Joint Committee meetings. Topics discussed included the main relevant issues at EU level such as the revision of the Environmental Impact Assessment Directive and the Social Housing report. John Slaughter, expert from the UK Home Builders Federation, gave a very informed presentation on the ‘NewBuy’ Guarantee Scheme.
Participants also had the chance to visit the Parlamentarium, Europe’s largest parliamentary visitor centre, where they could learn about European politics and policy making. Afterwards they had a traditional Belgian food dinner at the Belga Queen.
