Covid roadmap: Will market normality finally return, agents wonder?

first_imgHome » News » COVID-19 news » Covid roadmap: Will market normality finally return, agents wonder? previous nextCOVID-19 newsCovid roadmap: Will market normality finally return, agents wonder?Many in the industry are hoping that the latest ‘Boris bounce’ will help smooth over the potential Stamp Duty cliff face.Nigel Lewis23rd February 202101,350 Views The estate agency industry has given its first reaction to the government’s ‘road map’ to re-opening England which will see a steady easing of the lockdown regulations between March 8th and June 21 when, if everything goes to plan, Covid will be over.This will start with schools and colleges opening and people being allowed to meet one other friend for a coffee or picnic, followed by gatherings of up to six people or two households on 29th March.Shops will then re-open on 12th April along with most pubs and restaurants but only those with outdoor seating along with limited access to pools, gyms and other venues.On 17th May restrictions will continue but allow groups of up to 30 people allowed to meet in parks and gardens and up to six people indoors.Stadiums and other sport venues will also be allowed to open, but all these measures will be dependent on continuing reviews by the government to ensure the virus, or a variation of it, does not begin to spread again.Dominic Agace (pictured), chief executive Winkworth, says: “It’s a great relief to get to this long-awaited marker, plotting a way out of this third and, hopefully, final lockdown.“Throughout the second and third lockdowns, buyer demand has remained.“With a hint of spring on its way and a route to a sustained normality, optimism should build, with sellers returning in greater numbers to the market.“Current demand is ahead of 2020 levels and outperforming the boost from the Boris bounce following the outcome of the General Election – but the supply of homes to the market has lessened. As a result, we are seeing prices hold firm and a positive and balanced market beyond the end of the stamp duty holiday.”James Forrester (pictured), MD of Barrows and Forrester, says: “Welcome news for the property market which has been running on the artificially fuelled demand of a stamp duty reprieve.“With this due to end in March, there was a degree of uncertainty around the future of the market and whether we would see property prices nosedive as a result.“With normality now starting to return, this is unlikely to materialise and while the market will simmer to a more measured level of activity in the wake of the stamp duty holiday, this will be far from the crash that many have predicted.”Read the full Covid road document.  Covid roadmap James Forrester Boris Johnson Dominic Agace winkworth February 23, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

first_img Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today US Navy to christen future USNS Burlington (T-EPF 10) View post tag: USNS Burlington View post tag: Austal The US Navy is set to christen its newest expeditionary fast transport ship in a ceremony at Austal’s Mobile, Alabama, shipyard on February 24.The future USNS Burlington, designated T-EPF 10, will be the first ship in naval service to honor Burlington, Vermont’s largest city. The first Navy ship Burlington (PF-51) was named for Burlington, Iowa, and served during World War II.“This ship honors Burlington, Vermont, a city that embodies American values and its patriotic, hardworking citizens for their support and contributions to our Navy,” said Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer. “Burlington, like the other ships in the EPF program, will provide our commanders high-speed sealift mobility and agility.”With an all-aluminum shallow-draft hull, the EPF is a commercial-based catamaran capable of intra-theater personnel and cargo lift.EPF class ships are designed to transport 600 short tons of military cargo, 1,200 nautical miles, at an average speed of 35 knots. The ship is capable of operating in shallow-draft ports and waterways, interfacing with roll-on/roll-off discharge facilities and on/off-loading a combat-loaded Abrams main battle tank (M1A2).The EPF includes a flight deck for helicopter operations and an off-load ramp that will allow vehicles to quickly drive off the ship. EPF’s shallow draft (under 15 feet) further enhances littoral operations and port access.The EPF program delivered its ninth ship late last year, USNS City of Bismarck (T-EPF 9). Puerto Rico (EPF 11) and Newport (EPF 12) are currently under construction at Austal’s shipyard.

Press release: Military grade underwater cameras working to end illegal fishing for eels in the Fens

first_img Using boat mounted sonar equipment we can travel up to 10km per day, checking every inch of channel for illegal and submerged equipment. This is our greatest weapon in halting the illegal exploitation of eels and gives us a chance to completely rid waters of illegal instruments. The Environment Agency leads on the enforcement of permits for migratory species like eels, smelt and lamprey. Regular auditing of these fisheries is essential to ensure protection of these iconic and in the case of eel – a critically endangered species; but also to ensure that the activity is regulated and sustainable.With the eel stock in decline and exploitation of the stock being currently unsustainable, the EA work to protect their habitat, improve access for them further upstream and regulate other activities that might impact on each life stage of the species.In the East the fens provide excellent habitat for mature eels. Adult “silver” eels will return to the Sargasso Sea as their final life stage to spawn and much of the enforcement work protects this phase.Anyone fishing for eels should be permitted, be fishing within the conditions of the licence, and nets must include visible and valid tags, as well as being equipped with otter guards too.Any suspected illegal fishing activity should be reported to the Environment Agency’s Incident Hotline on 0800 80 70 60.Anyone wishing to fish for migratory species including eels should visit Permission to trap crayfish, eels, elvers, salmon and sea trout.All anglers need a valid Environment Agency rod licence which can be bought using a credit or debit card by calling the Environment Agency’s telesales line on 0344 800 5386. Alternatively, they can be obtained from any Post Office or visit: Buy a rod fishing licence Fisheries enforcement staff at the Environment Agency have been using innovative underwater sonar technology to help protect an endangered species.The sonar equipment is used to assess fish populations, especially where it’s hard to use classic methods like netting and electric fishing.It is also being used to regulate areas of illegal fishing, including poaching, netting and trapping, as part of the fisheries enforcement work, funded by rod licence money.A recent audit of a river near King’s Lynn resulted in a record illegal eel net seizure; 16 nets in total, capable of significantly impacting an emigrating eel population. The nets were removed, enabling hundreds of eels to be released, and Norfolk police is investigating the case.Kye Jerrom, Environment Agency fisheries specialist in East Anglia, said:last_img read more
