Land rights researcher Andy Wightman, has recently produced an excellent report for the Scottish Green Party entitled "A Land Value Tax for Scotland". After concisely setting the scene by laying out the arguments for taxing land values and summarising recent developments Andy goes on to set out a well-thought out practical proposal for replacing business rates and Council Tax in Scotland with a land value tax. What is very refreshing and impressive about this report is the level of detail that there is and the tables of data that have been amassed. Consideration is given to the particular issues that apply to Scotland by considering particular details - housing, derelict land, public spaces, farms, sporting estates, industrial estates have all been considered.
Well worth studying.
