People, phosphorus, and the environment: the evils of flush toilets - John Boyle

Exploring place: a new dimension to land value capture - Rich Dunning

Date: 24th January 2019
Time: 18:00 - 19:30

Venue: University of Liverpool, Rendall Building, Lecture Theatre 7

Land value capture may be “the least bad tax”, but its operation is hotly contested in England. Advocates support greater scrutiny of developer’s financial models to extract more cash for public investments, whilst detractors argue it limits development. We will explore these tensions through ‘place’ and question the construction of value as an inherently land based development activity.
