FuturePlanner speaks to PLRG on 24th Nov

Stephen Hill, Director of C2O futureplanners and a member of RICS' Planning & Development Professional Group Board, has kindly agreed to be the next speaker in the series of talks for the Professional Land Reform Group (PLRG).

Hill will give his talk on the subject of Planning and Land Pricing. In his piece fronting a special feature on the future of UK spatial planning in the RICS Land journal, he writes in favour of fundamental reform of property-related taxes:-

"...reforms that abandon transaction taxes in favour of a fairer and more efficient system focused on the consumption and use of property and land. The state must ensure a fair and progressive allocation of scarce resources that have a uniquely important role to play in a modern political economy. Land pricing unconstrained by public-interest considerations makes it hard to move to a low-carbon economy, as it externalises all the environmental costs that other aspects of public policy are trying to tackle."

Hill was among several members of PLRG who attended a workshop at RICS on 23rd October on Taxes & Property.

PLRG meetings take place at London South University, near Elephant & Castle Underground. Entrance 103 Borough Rd, SE1 0AA, Room B172. Travel directions Please email PLRG Hon Sec (and Landvaluescape editor) Dr Tony Vickers 

This talk will take place on Wednesday 24th November at 6pm.

Suggestions for future PLRG talks should be sent to Dr Vickers at the same address.
