star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to making the housing market work. By the mid-2020s, we aim to have increased house building to an average of 300,000 net new homes a year. And as we move towards achieving this target, we will not sacrifice higher quality and standards.</p><p>We have already made commitments to provide better protection for purchasers of new build homes who experience snagging issues and we know more needs to be done. On 1 October 2018, we announced our intention for there to be a New Homes Ombudsman to protect the rights of homebuyers and hold developers to account. We also announced our intention to bring forward legislation to require all developers to belong to a New Homes Ombudsman.</p><p>On 24 January, following a wide-ranging consultation with consumers and industry, we set out our plans to strengthen consumer redress for the whole housing market. I want to help plug the gaps in available redress services so that more people can get their housing disputes resolved without going through the courts. We have also made great strides to create greater fairness in the rental market by banning unfair letting fees, capping tenancy deposits and cracking down on rogue landlords.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government has an ambitious programme to bring brownfield land back into use in England and is working closely with local authorities to drive this forward. In April 2017 we introduced a requirement for local planning authorities to publish a statutory brownfield land register by the end of 2017 which will identify which previously developed sites are suitable for housing. We are currently working with representative organisations for local government to ensure local planning authorities have these brownfield land registers in place. In addition, there is continuing engagement with local authorities on a range of other programmes, including the designation of 26 Housing Zones on brownfield land, and our £1.2 billion Starter Homes Land Fund to bring forward suitable brownfield land for starter homes and other types of affordable home ownership products.</p><p /><p /> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Renewables Obligation (RO) places an obligation on UK electricity suppliers to source a specified proportion of the electricity they supply to customers from renewable sources. This proportion – called ‘the Obligation’ – is set each year by government in line with legislation. The scheme is administered by Ofgem, who issue Renewables Obligation Certificates (ROCs) to generators in relation to the renewable electricity they generate. Further details of how the scheme operates can be found on Ofgem’s website:</p><p><a href="https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/environmental-programmes/renewables-obligation-ro?page=1#block-views-publications-and-updates-block" target="_blank">https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/environmental-programmes/renewables-obligation-ro?page=1#block-views-publications-and-updates-block</a>.</p><p>It is assumed that the cost of the RO to suppliers is passed on to consumers through their energy bills. The total cost that can be levied on consumers through the RO is controlled through DECC’s Levy Control Framework.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
