Following the Chancellor’s first and last Spring budget, our March issue of LDN – London in Short considers the impact of various announcements on the capital, particularly progress on the devolution agenda and a potential new way of funding infrastructure investment.
Meanwhile, this month marks the return of MIPIM as the great and good of the property industry descend on Cannes.
