star this property answer text <p>The Marriage Allowance was introduced in April 2015 to recognise the importance of marriage and civil partnerships through the tax system, and support those on low incomes by helping them keep more of the money they earn. There were 1.78m claimants for the Marriage Allowance in 2018-19.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has taken significant steps to encourage people to claim for the Marriage Allowance. HM Revenue and Customs ran a series of both free and paid-for marketing campaigns, which ran between October 2015 and March 2017, and continue to raise awareness through ongoing communication on social media and on GOV.UK. Marriage Allowance can be claimed through the Personal Tax Account on GOV.UK or by phone to HMRC. The Marriage Allowance can be backdated to 2015-16 when it was introduced. This means eligible couples can claim a total of £1,150 if not claimed before.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Only registered housing providers are exempt from selective licensing. This is to ensure that all privately rented accommodation is properly regulated. We take this approach to ensure that high standards are maintained in all rental properties and all tenants are protected. Almshouse Charities are free to register as providers of social housing and some 25 per cent already are. Where almshouses decide not to register, local authorities have discretion to discount or waive fees associated with the licensing process.</p><p>Going forward, the Government has commissioned a thorough and independent review into the effectiveness of selective licensing. This is on schedule to report in Spring 2019. The Department will consider the outcomes of the review carefully, including how selecting licensing works for local communities and charitable organisations.</p> more like this

Any proposals for additional funding would need to meet public funding guidelines. On the part of the site owned by SSI-in-liquidation, development is currently constrained because of the charges held by three Thai banks.

star this property answer text <p>Following the devolution of mayoral development corporation powers to the Tees Valley Combined Authority, and the designation by the Tees Valley Mayor, the Government was required to seek Parliamentary approval to the Order establishing the South Tees Development Corporation. The object of the South Tees Development Corporation is to secure the regeneration of its area, and it may do anything it considers appropriate for these purposes. It is not accountable to the Treasury; it is accountable to the Tees Valley Mayor who decided to establish it. The Mayor is also the Chair of the South Tees Development Corporation and appoints its members. The Mayor is accountable to the Combined Authority and the Tees Valley electorate.</p><p>Any requests made for national public funding by the Tees Valley Combined Authority or the South Tees Development Corporation are assessed by the relevant Department and, where appropriate, Her Majesty’s Treasury in line with the guidelines of ‘Managing Public Money’. As part of its devolution deal the Tees Valley Combined Authority has been given an investment fund of £15m a year for 30 years. The Combined Authority has responsibility for how it will invest these funds within the scope of an agreed assurance framework, which sets out how they will appraise, monitor and evaluate schemes to achieve value for money. Investment decisions made by the Mayor and the Combined Authority are subject to the agreement of the Combined Authority and local scrutiny. An independent panel will assess the impact of investments on economic growth at five yearly Gateway Reviews. Further information on the governance arrangements of the South Tees Development Corporation is available (attached) on its website: <a href="https://www.southteesdc.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/STDC-17-18-Signed-Annual-Governance-Statement.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.southteesdc.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/STDC-17-18-Signed-Annual-Governance-Statement.pdf</a> and <a href="https://www.southteesdc.com/about-us/transparency-required-information/" target="_blank">https://www.southteesdc.com/about-us/transparency-required-information/</a></p>
