In September we announced an additional £2 billion of long-term funding certainty for housing associations. This extra funding will deliver more affordable homes and stimulate the sector’s wider building ambitions, through strategic partnerships. £1 billion of this funding is open for bidding with existing Homes England Strategic Partnerships.</p><p>We have increased the size of the Affordable Homes Programme, re-introduced social rent, removed the Housing Revenue Account borrowing cap for local authorities, and have set out a long-term rent deal for councils and housing associations in England from 2020. Housing associations and local authorities now need to accelerate delivery and build more affordable homes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 is helping to drive up standards in the private and social rented sectors by putting an obligation on landlords to ensure that any rented residential properties are free of all hazards, including overcrowding, from which a risk of harm may arise to the health or safety of the tenant or another occupier of the property. This requirement applies from the outset and for the duration of the tenancy.</p><p>This Department has not made a specific assessment of the implications for properties that are smaller than 13 square metres in relation to the Homes Act. The courts will decide whether a property is fit for human habitation by considering the matters set out in section 10 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, which includes the ‘overcrowding’ hazard prescribed in the Housing Health and Safety (England) Regulations 2005. Each property is assessed on its own merits, and if a property is so small as to be hazardously overcrowded, tenants will have the right to take action in the courts for breach of contract on the grounds that the property is unfit for human habitation.</p><p>Government is also reviewing the hazards set out in the 2005 Regulations as part of the comprehensive review of the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS).</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Since Budget 2016 the Government has introduced business rates measures in England worth more than £13 billion over the next five years. This includes switching the indexation of business rates from the retail price index to the consumer price index, representing a cut in rates to all ratepayers, including childcare providers, worth around £6 billion over the next five years. The Government has also doubled the threshold for 100 per cent small business rate relief meaning that over 675,000 businesses including many childcare providers are no longer subject to rates.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>This Government recognises that providing more homes for older people is vital to support an ageing population. Offering older people a better choice of accommodation can help enable them to live independently for longer and help reduce costs to the social care and health systems. The proposals set out in the White Paper, “Fixing our broken housing market”, underline our commitment to do more to provide the homes we need for all in our society</p><p><br> In the White Paper we acknowledged that older and disabled peoples’ housing needs was an issue that needed to be addressed. We have strengthened the revised National Planning Policy Framework, published in July 2018, and on 26 June 2019 we published new guidance to help councils to put these policies in place. This makes it clear that authorities should set clear policies to address the housing needs of groups with particular needs such as older and disabled people. This guidance also sets out the range of options these should consider, from housing with improved accessibility through to more specialised options.</p>

In October 2018 the Government refreshed the Hate Crime Action Plan, and committed additional funding to continue to protect places of worship - since 2016 Government’s Places of Worship scheme has approved 17 grants to Gurdwaras. Additionally, we have committed just over £1.5 million for projects to tackle all forms of racially and religiously motivated hatred. The Government has an extensive engagement programme with all faith communities, including the Sikh community through the MHCLG-led Sikh roundtable. Membership of the roundtable is currently being refreshed to broaden the representation.</p> more like this
