Capturing Land Value from Developments

This project seeks to identify the potential impact that alternative land value capture mechanisms might have on the incidence and value of developer contributions in Britain. The future of these developer contributions to public finances through CIL and planning obligations in Britain is uncertain (e.g. CIL review 2017, London Mayor Draft Housing Strategy 2017, Housing White Paper 2017). The purpose of this project is to provide attitudinal evidence and behavioural modelling of a range of LVC mechanisms and make policy recommendations accordingly.
