The buildings on this site in the middle of Brighton were knocked down about 20 years ago. Consent for office development was quickly given but nothing happened. The owners have re-applied for consent a couple of times and got it, but still nothing has happened.

This is just one of the reasons why land value taxation is required.

If a properly designed system was in place, the site would have been developed long ago.
