The Planning Portal and the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, signalling their intent to work more closely together for the benefit of their joint customers and members.
The Planning Portal writes:
The Planning Portal has been promoting FMB’s ‘Find a Builder’ service since 2016. This service, which includes over 8,000 vetted local builders, has been popular with the Planning Portal’s 500,000 users; especially consumers using the website to plan a wide range of home improvement and building projects.
Following the success of this partnership, the two organisations are now seeking to broaden their relationship in other areas of mutual interest.
Sarah Chilcott, Managing Director of the Planning Portal, had this to say: ‘We’re delighted to have signed this Memorandum of Understanding with the FMB, welcoming them into our group of strategic partners; all of whom share with us similar aims, values and ethics. We firmly believe that working in partnership with like-minded organisations results in better outcomes for our customers. We are therefore very much looking forward to working with FMB more closely in the future to provide even more value to the Planning Portal’s consumer and B2B users.’
Brian Berry, Chief Executive of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), said: ‘Working more closely with the Planning Portal will benefit builders and consumers alike as it will help consumers better understand the often complex planning and building system. With more than 8,000 vetted Master Builders our members are best placed to help consumers deliver the building projects they desire. This new initiative with the Planning Portal is an important step to assist this process.’
