EPCs are subject to regular auditing and a recently revised set of operating requirements designed to ensure appropriate standards.

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to using existing mechanisms of land value capture as effectively as possible. We have recently introduced major reforms to the planning rulebook to help local authorities capture land value for affordable housing, and make sure developers know the contributions expected of them. At Autumn Budget we also announced further reforms to improve the existing system of developer contributions. The key objectives of these reforms are to make the system of developer contributions more transparent and accountable. However, we recognise more needs to be done, and will continue to explore options to go further. Through the Housing and Planning Act 2016 and Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017, the Government has taken forward wide-ranging reforms to make the compulsory purchase process clearer, fairer and faster for all. We are keen to let these recent reforms bed in but will continue to monitor their practical application. We announced at Budget a £10 million fund to support local authorities that want to establish delivery vehicles that have strong land assembly powers, and in the Summer legislated to enable the creation of locally-accountable New Town Development Corporations. We note the report by the APPG on land value capture, the HCLG Select committee has also recently held an inquiry on Land Value Capture and the Government is due to respond to the Committee’s recommendations shortly.</p>

That is why we have recently published our Rough Sleeping Strategy, which will help people who sleep rough now and puts in place the structures to end rough sleeping once and for all. It sets out the first steps towards achieving our aim to halve rough sleeping by 2022 and end it altogether by 2027, backed by £100 million of funding over the next two years.</p><p>We have set up a Rough Sleeping and Homelessness Reduction Taskforce which brings together ministers from key departments in preventing and reducing rough sleeping and homelessness, including the Department for Health and Social Care. The Taskforce will drive forward the implementation and delivery of our Rough Sleeping Strategy to achieve our commitment. Alongside the Taskforce, we have an expert Rough Sleeping Advisory Panel formed of key representatives from the homelessness sector and local government who fed into the Strategy and will continue to meet.</p><p>We are also committed to working with all local authorities as we move towards a country where no one should ever sleep rough through our Rough Sleeping Initiative, in which we are providing 1,750 additional bed spaces for rough sleepers and an additional 531 dedicated homelessness workers. We are also working with local areas through measures set out in our Rough Sleeping Strategy such as the Rapid Rehousing Pathway, strengthening local homelessness strategies and supporting Health and Wellbeing Boards to recognise and respond to the health needs of people who sleep rough.</p>
