04 June 2018

The Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee questions local authorities, landowners and developers as part of the land value capture inquiry.

Witnesses

Monday 4 June in the Thatcher Room, Portcullis House

At 4pm

Panel 1: Local Authorities

  • Cllr Martin Tett, Chair, Local Government Association’s Environment, Economy, Housing & Transport Board
  • Daryl Phillips, Chief Executive Planning Lead, District Councils’ Network
  • John Wacher, Strategic Planning Manager, Greater London Authority

Panel 2: Landowners and Developers

  • Christopher Price, Director of Policy and Advice, Country Land and Business Association
  • Philip Barnes, Group Land Director, Barratt Developments
  • Paul Brocklehurst, Chair, Land Promoters and Developers Federation

Purpose of the session

The session is the second in the inquiry, which is examining the effectiveness of current methods and the need for new ways of capturing any uplift in the value of land associated with the granting of planning permission or nearby infrastructure improvements.

MPs are likely to question the representatives from local authorities on the effectiveness of current methods, including the compulsory purchase process, as well as possible new methods. A panel of landowners and developers could then be asked about reforms to CIL and Section 106, and calls to allow local authorities to purchase land at existing use value.
