Call For Land Tax On Labourlist

Recommended Posts

LabourList has been asking for new ideas to rebuild the Labour movement and in this report we call on the government to replace regressive council tax and business rates with a modest land value tax. We think that this would ultimately create a far more comprehensive and stable housing system.

A Land value tax would also encourage sustainable communities, as investment in public infrastructure would be self-financing.

There would be no excuse not to build a good local school, reinvigorate a local park or a better train line. And it would encourage owners to bring vacant property into re-use and reinvigorate our town centres.

There will be 5 million people in need of social housing by 2010, so these ideas are not just for rebuilding our movement, but rebuilding our communities.

Get stuck in folks. They still think there is a housing 'shortage' though.
