"Let the Beneficiaries Pay": OMEGA seminar 10th October UCL

"Mega urban transport projects and land-value capture: a solution to infrastructure funding and investment in the UK" is the subject of a talk by PLRG Hon Sec Dr Tony Vickers at the Bartlett School of Planning, University College London, in the OMEGA Centre seminar series on 10th October.

The talk is free, because "Beneficiaries should pay" is the sub-title of the talk. OMEGA Centres are funded by Volvo; car manufacturers benefit from transport investment!

Details of the venue, including times, for the seminars are on the UCL site. If you can't make it, Dr Vickers' slides will be uploaded here.

Tony Vickers lectures to final year degree and post-graduate students on the role of "green taxes" in sustainable economics and the professions of the built environment, at Kingston University's School of Planning & Surveying. He is an independent researcher and lecturer, currently part of a Kingston University research team that is monitoring the Government's pilot of Land Auctions. He is available to lecture at other institutions in southern Britain.
