All Party Parliamentary Group on Land Value Capture

Appg logo

Statement of purpose:

To work in partnership with national and local government departments, land developers and others to create a forum for Parliamentarians and interested stakeholders to discuss and develop innovative proposals to capture increases in land value, for the public benefit.

The overall aim of the APPG on Land Value Capture is to be recognised as an influential and effective partner in the area of Land Value Capture for the public benefit; so as to ensure political commitment from the UK government and other sources to address the issues arising from shortages in the supply of land and necessary infrastructure for housing and its impacts on inequality and poverty in society.

Key objectives include:

  • Raise political awareness about Land Value Capture and its role in addressing housing supply constraints and poverty in general.
  • Make addressing Land Value Capture a political priority for the UK government, all political parties and the international community.
  • Keep MPs and Peers informed with current and emerging issues in Land Value Capture and International best practice.
  • Hold regular meetings and events and so provide an opportunity for those with a common interest to meet and debate their views.
  • Deliver the aims of the Group and its members via a range of activities including informal gathering such as receptions, formal presentations by organisations at meetings, letter writing, tabling Early Day Motions and Parliamentary Questions.
  • Establish working groups to investigate and report on areas of concern
  • Liaise with other APPGs including the APPG for Housing and Planning and the APPG on self-build, custom and community housebuilding and place making; and where appropriate, work in partnership with other APPGs on cross‐cutting issues.
