Stop Big Builders & Landowners Huge Profits - Build more Community Facilities & Social Housing.

We Liberal Democrats are disgusted by the profits made by the big House Building firms of which Persimmon is the worst. The Conservative's in Government are too cosy; feeding Government money into schemes which line their pockets.

Jason Billin said that huge profits made by landowners when planning permission is given should be reduced.

In the last Council meeting Liberal Democrats called for the Government to give Local Authorities the power to compulsory purchase land for development and to fund Housing Association building and build better community facilities. We want more social/rented housing to be built by local builders. Rushcliffe Council rests too heavily on the big builders who don't provide good community facilities and could build more social housing.
