This March the British Property Federation (BPF); backed by a number of backbench MPs re-launched their campaign to urge the Government and in particular the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne to abolish the tax currently levied on empty property rates.
Dubbed the ‘Bombsite Britain Tax’, the empty property rates legislation causes millions of square feet of perfectly usable empty property to be demolished every year.
I was approached by the BPF to deliver a new website that would be the online focal point of this important campaign. The new site was to feature a Content Management System (CMS), blog, newsroom and social media integration.
Delivered in a matter of days and successfully launched on Friday 2nd March 2012 the new site has already received wide coverage in the national media.
The campaign is expected to run until the Budget on the 21st March 2012. To find out why the ‘Bombsite Britain Tax’ is not such a good idea check out bombsitebritaintax.co.uk.
