RIBA president Marco Goldschmied is to write to the leaders of the three main political parties this week to respond to the policies they have put forward in their election manifestos. Goldschmeid said he was particularly impressed by the Liberal Democrats' pledge to equalize the VAT threshold on new build and refurbishment projects. 'This is an urgent need if we are to raise urban densities, ' he said. 'We will be using the Liberal Democrat pledge in the new Parliament to exert further pressure on the government over this issue.'
