The NFB encourages builders, contractors and house builders to take responsible action and get involved.

We campaign on a number of issues which are important to our members. These campaign overviews will give you information on our current campaigns, and our approach for addressing some of the challenges that our members and the industry are facing.

Our priorities are:

  • Smarter procurement
  • Fair payment
  • Streamlined planning
  • Subsidised training
  • Stay safe
  • Find a builder
  • Fix Radio

The NFB regularly seeks feedback on consultations that affect the construction industry. These consultations will be posted below as comments or member responses are sought. For further information please email policy@builders.org.uk

NFB members can sign up to this service by visiting the 'MyNFB' tab within your member profile and select 'Consultations' from the auto-alert list.

NFB consultation responses

Please find, to the right, a summary of NFB responses to consultations.  

The NFB policy team provides guidance for members on changes in legislation and what those changes mean for their business.

Policy carries out in-depth research, producing influential reports in areas such as public sector procurement, sustainable construction and utilities' connections services.

Policy also lobbies on behalf of members to ensure that unnecessary barriers to winning work are removed and that the contribution construction makes to the economy is recognised.
