Land Reform

Land Reform

Communities are often deprived of the facilities and amenities they need because of landowners refusing to consider the needs of others. Land should be considered as leasehold, rather than being owned and inherited. On the death of the leaseholder, the land should be returned to the state, rather than be inherited. The family of the former leaseholder could be given first refusal on a new lease, but would have to pay for it. This would require land to be put to productive use, redistribute wealth and prevent entire communities from being held back.
