Sharing land value with communities: An open letter

Posted on Posted in News

Create Streets were signatories to an open letter, published on 20 August 2018 and signed by 16 leading campaign organisations from across the political spectrum, from the CPRE to Shelter. The letter was sent to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP. It argues that that more of the huge uplift in value caused by the granting of planning permission on the land should be captured to provide benefits to the community.  You can read the letter and see the full list of signatories here
