star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Government is committed to increasing the supply of suitable housing for older people and also to helping people to live independently at home for longer.</p><p>The Government is improving choice for those who wish to move by providing £315 million between 2013-14 – 2017-18 through the Care and Support Specialised Housing Fund. Phase I of the fund was announced last year and will deliver more than 3,500 affordable homes for older people and adults with disabilities or mental health needs. The successful bids for Phase II of the programme, which aims to stimulate development in the wider private market, will be announced later this year.</p><p>The National Planning Policy Framework asks local planning authorities to assess the full housing requirements in their area and plan for a mix of housing based on demographic trends and the needs of different groups in the area, including older people. The planning guidance advisesthat local planning authorities should count housing provided for older people, including residential institutions in Use Class C2, against their housing requirement. The approach taken, which may include site allocations, should be clearly set out in the Local Plan. Copies of the Framework and the guidance have been placed in the Library of the House.</p><p>To help extended families, the Government introduced in April a 50 per cent council tax discount on family annexes. We have also made amendments to the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations, exempting from the levy those wanting to extend their own homes, or install residential annexes within their own property boundary.</p><p>The Department for Communities and Local Government is providing funding of £785 million between 2011-12 – 2014-15 for the Disabled Facilities Grant which is administered by local authorities in England and provides adaptations to the homes of disabled people to help them to live as independently as possible in their own home. A further £220 million will be made available in 2015-16.</p><p>Since 2011-12, the Government has funded FirstStop with over £2 million to provide a national information and advice service to older people, their families and carers on housing, care and finance.</p><p> </p>

This includes capacity funding for each Local Enterprise Partnership, Regional Growth Fund for programmes sponsored by Local Enterprise Partnerships and funding for Enterprise Zones which are sponsored by Local Enterprise Partnerships. No further Growing Places Fund has been allocated since March 2012.</p><p>All funding to Local Enterprise Partnerships goes through their accountable body (a nominated local authority) and so no funds are paid directly to Local Enterprise Partnerships.</p><p>I would observe that the north of England has received proportionately the most funding (per capita), followed by the Midlands, and then the south of England, reflecting the fact that we are supporting economic growth in all parts of the country, north and south, rural and urban, shire and city, but particularly those which were left behind under the last Administration.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td> </td><td><p><em>Total government funding</em></p></td><td><p><em>Population</em></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>North of England</p></td><td><p>£157.8 million</p></td><td><p>16,463,900</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Midlands</p></td><td><p>£90.5 million</p></td><td><p>12,903,800</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>South of England</p></td><td><p>£106.9 million</p></td><td><p>28,966,600</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
