star this property answer text <p>While the Government does not have immediate plans to review the rights of social housing tenants, in light of the terrible tragedy of the Grenfell Tower fire, we have been clear in that more attention must be focused on social housing and listening to its tenants. We are determined to do all that we can to make sure that something like this never happens again.</p><p>Our immediate priority is to support the victims, to find homes for those made homeless by the fire, and to make sure the country's housing stock is safe. The Secretary of State also announced on 5 July that an independent Recovery Taskforce will be appointed to advise the Council on the longer term recovery needs, and will answer directly to the Secretary of State. The Taskforce will remain in place for as long as is required.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Communities and Local Government has not undertaken an assessment of the revaluation on the financial sustainability of non-maintained childcare and early-education providers. However, rateable values of nursery premises are taken into account in the amount of early years funding provided to local authorities for them to distribute to providers.</p><p>At the Budget, the Government announced a £435 million package of support to help those businesses most in need of support following the revaluation. It included £110 million to support rate-payers losing small business rates relief and rural rate relief as a result of the 2017 revaluation, as well as a £300 million discretionary relief fund for local authorities to help local businesses. Additionally, if a non-maintained childcare and early-education provider is also a registered charity for business rates purposes it may also qualify for relief.</p> more like this
