Campaign for Owners

LPOC take their campaign for listed building owners to Westminster

The Listed Property Owners Club is making significant progress in its campaign for increased help for owners.

LPOC have designed a strategy to draw attention to the issues surrounding listed property ownership after the difficulties faced in recent years.

We have chosen this opportune time to engage with Westminster and have been working on a number of activities to lobby the government to reduce VAT for all work on listed buildings to 5%. Together we are seeking support from policy makers and pushing to increase the number of political advocates.
