The Centre for
Cities thinktank has proposed that a supplementary business rate be applied
to businesses to fund planned transport projects including

Birmingham New Street
The tax would allow big cities across Britain to borrow a total of £10bn to

in decision-making and would be able to sit down with local authorities to
discuss how to implement the rate rise.
