Our experts analyse the significant opportunities for investors and developers that are presented by a largely untapped market in the UK, ‘Suburban Build to Rent’.

What’s the outlook for the regional hotel market?
The regional hotel market has performed resiliently over the past 18 months, particularly leisure-led hotels. Investors are in the market for assets but supply has been limited, driven by strong underlying trade and hoteliers enjoying the boom period. Savills guests looks at whether the strength of the regional hotel market will carry on, particularly as there are increasing challenges in the market such as staff shortages.

Our experts also discuss the role of real estate in carbon emissions, looking at how Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) and repurposing could be used to significantly lower the sector’s carbon footprint.
Long-term boom or bubble: where next for the logistics market?
Unprecedented demand for European logistics and industrial assets - from investors and occupiers alike - means the sector is on course for another record year.

Spotlight on South West Leisure
Over the last few years the UK leisure market has seen growth. This was a trend prior to COVID-19 that has been compounded due to recent events. Across the country, key location hotspots are seeing the benefits from staycactions. In recent months there has also been a rise in homeowners moving out of cities – the south west has been a hotspot for this. Historically the south west had a very condensed market with small number of regional operators, however this is starting to change with national operators looking to get involved in the locations.
The desirability of sites is very location specific and in the south west there is a clear line between the desirable locations and the less. With interest in coastal towns rising significantly. Demand from independent and small pub and restaurant operators is very strong and confidence in market is growing. Holiday parks have seen investment in their central facilities which gives the customer another option in case of poor weather and also provides the option to extend the season. And as demand for holiday accommodation in the South West continues to be robust the lack of supply has seen a rise in tariffs in line with the rise of occupancy.
Join Guy Ruddle and guests: Kevin Marsh, head of licensed leisure at Savills, Chris Sweeney, director in the leisure and trade team at Savills and James Greenslade, director in the hotel capital markets team at Savills discuss the changes that have been taking place in the South West, the impact of Covid-19, Brexit and changes in consumer behaviour. They also discuss how the sector is becoming more mainstream, what types of investors are interested in the market and what the future holds.
