Can Hpc Get Behind This

Recommended Posts

Would be buyers with something of a deposit should be getting behind the movement for radical changes to remove planning restrictions. This opportunity has been largely overlooked by the masses who have not been able to get their minds around the consequences.

The advantages are

1. Greater tax take on release of land

2. Greater council tax take from increase in property numbers

3. Greater provision of affordable housing

The only downside (for some) is general reduction in house prices

Clearly the only losers are the property investors.

It really should not be difficult for the would-be FTB to help push this new legislation through. Suppport Prescott for once. Plus apply pressure for higher quality larger homes - which will go down well.

Remeber it is better to pay an extra 20% in tax than an extra 100% in property investor profit

The property investors will play the ' we should not concrete over our countryside' card, but this is so weak when the statistics of land use are analysed.

HPCers should all suppport the changes is legislaton.

I would appreciate comments from those wishing to see a 40% reduction in prices over the next 2 years!!

I agree. However, while with the one hand Prescott giveth, with the other he taketh away with his moronic scheme to knock down hundreds of thousands of perfectly sound houses round the country in the name of renewal or some such crap. I'd rather live in a nice 20s terrace house with proper brick walls than a plasterboard 2-bed shoebox, thanks :angry:.
