Cllr Robert Saunders supports campaign to stop landbanking

Cllr Robert Saunders is supporting homelessness charity Shelter’s campaign that calls for a tax on developers who are “sitting on 60,000 stalled sites” with planning permission for housing across England.

Shelter said that levying a “stalled sites tax” on developers could result in “tens of thousands” of new homes being built in three to five years. It suggests that the Government should charge council tax on the number of homes that could have been built on a site if, after a “reasonable period of time”, a housebuilder had not begun construction.

Cllr Saunders “said there are numerous sites in Alton which have permission for development which include significant amounts of affordable housing.  These sites have had planning permission for a long period and are an unsightly and wasteful blot on the landscape”.
