    Philip Hammond tried to strike an upbeat note in his budget, declaring "austerity is over". Cossetted inside Westminster for the afternoon, he hid away from the storm clouds gathering over our economy.

    Brexit is making the situation worse.

    In truth, austerity cannot be brought to an end without difficult decisions involving an increase in taxation.

    Dear Resident,

    We are writing as a number of residents in the area have been concerned with upcoming plans for the land at the end of School Walk next to the Scout hut and Hazelwood.

    In July 2016, in the aftermath of the referendum, the Liberal Democrats were a lone voice calling for a final say on whatever deal was done on Brexit.

    Today, an estimated 700,000 people marched on the streets of London, calling for a people's vote on Brexit.

    Liberal Democrat members will debate and vote on the proposals at the party's Autumn Conference in Brighton next week.

    The report - "Taxing Land, Not Investment" - calls for the abolition of business rates and its replacement with a tax on land values, the Commercial Landowner Levy (CLL). The levy would remove buildings and machinery from calculations and tax only the land value of commercial sites, boosting investment and cutting taxes for businesses in nine out of ten English local authorities.
