to be much cheaper than the

average price of new homes, now.

That means cutting the link

between escalating land and

house prices.

There are various ways of doing

this: using public land without the

current legal requirement to

maximise value; the introduction

of land value taxation which would

incentivise the best use of land;

and modifications to land

compensation legislation so that

compulsory purchase can be used

without the payment of 'hope value'

for change of use.

I set out these ideas in a speech

earlier this year at the Royal

Institute of British Architects. We

shall be further developing them

for our manifesto.
