Secondly, We are the only party in Coventry calling for the creation of a new council-owned housing company. In addition, we are calling for more flexible office space and affordable housing in the city centre.
What’s more, we were the first party in Coventry to call for a Community Infrastructure Levy. We are also calling for a new tax on empty student flats to deter unnecessary developments and encourage change of use.
