Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, made the most of his invitation to the Sussex Property Networking Club to announce his latest parliamentary campaign.
Mike used the event to kick-start his drive to extend squatting legislation to commercial properties, after winning a key battle earlier in the year to criminalise squatting in residential properties. Mike is concerned that the recent change in the law does not go far enough and will now campaign to extend it to commercial premises. The evening proved to be a good opportunity to discuss the plan with property professionals from a range of different backgrounds.
The Sussex Property Networking Club was founded by local entrepreneur Sean Toole, who has built up a successful group in a relatively short period of time. For more information on the club, click here.
Commenting, Mike said: “Networking events like this are a fantastic opportunity to meet businesses owners and entrepreneurs from the city. Sean has done an excellent job to bring together a lot of property-minded people who are making big investments in Brighton & Hove. The evening also provided the perfect opportunity to outline my plans to extend the squatting law to cover commercial properties.”
