star this property answer text <p>For the purposes of the Department's annual rough sleeping estimates, the definition is as follows: People sleeping, about to bed down (sitting on/in or standing next to their bedding) or actually bedded down in the open air (such as on the streets, in tents, doorways, parks, bus shelters or encampments). People in buildings or other places not designed for habitation (such as stairwells, barns, sheds, car parks, cars, derelict boats, stations, or “bashes” which are makeshift shelters, often comprised of cardboard boxes).<em><em> <br></em></em><br>Nobody should ever have to sleep rough. We have already allocated £30 million of funding specifically to support rough sleepers, including people at risk of sleeping rough, new rough sleepers and those with the most complex needs - our ambition is to halve rough sleeping by 2022, eliminating it by 2027.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government makes no estimate of faulty new build homes. In our Housing White paper we set out our ambition for a housing market that works for everyone. We expect all housing developers to deliver good quality housing, deliver it on time and to treat house buyers fairly, resolving any problems quickly. All new homes are also subject to supervision by Building Control – local authorities and approved inspectors. DCLG Minsters will continue to raise the issue of quality regularly when they meet with the industry.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is widely acknowledged that the reasons why people are in food poverty are complex and overlapping, and therefore would be misleading to link this to any particular cause. The Government’s approach has been about recognising the value and importance of work, to make work pay and to support people into work whilst protecting the most vulnerable in society. We are committed to ensuring that those in work are paid a fair wage; have opportunities to progress and achieve their potential. We are getting disabled people into employment and working to change attitudes, introducing reforms to make sure that work always pays and that we support people into work. Since June 2016 over 750,000 of people who were receiving incapacity benefits are now either preparing for or looking for work.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The National Planning Policy Framework is clear that councils should plan for a mix of housing, based on the needs of different groups in the community, including disabled people. All new homes must have minimum levels of accessibility and local authorities are able to require higher levels of accessibility where it is properly justified, taking account of local need and viability. Through the Housing White Paper we set out proposals to reinforce these expectations, and have introduced a new statutory duty on the Secretary of State to produce guidance for local planning authorities on how their development documents should meet the housing needs of older and disabled people.</p> more like this
