POLITICAL CAMPAIGN FOR OWNERS

LPOC take their political campaign for listed building owners to Westminster

As owners of listed buildings we have all suffered some dreadful blows over the past few years, and at The Listed Property Owners’ Club, we hear daily of how these have affected us. Due to this, we wanted to create a voice in Parliament to represent owners and to fight our corner. 

The Political Campaign for Owners is an ongoing crusade by the Club to help owners of listed buildings and draw attention to the issues surrounding listed property ownership. At the heart of our campaign is our work to engage with Westminster and to lobby the government for the reduction of VAT to 5% on repairs and approved alterations to listed buildings and the simplification of the planning process.

At the end of 2016 we celebrated a major milestone when the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Listed Properties the Club has worked so hard to establish was officially recognised. We continue to actively seek support from policy makers and push to increase support for the APPG.

“I am delighted that the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) is working with LPOC in campaigning for vital reforms that will help listed property owners. The APPG on Listed Properties has already won strong support from across all parties and it will provide a powerful voice in Parliament, raising the challenges listed property owners face and pressing for necessary reforms.”

CRAIG MACKINLAY MP (CHAIR)
