unstar this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Government plays no direct role in the provision of student residential accommodation, nor does it specifically fund universities to provide such accommodation. As such, this is not an area where the Government can intervene.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>However, Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and private providers of ‘halls of residence’ type accommodation are required to belong to one of two Codes of Practice. These are the Student Accommodation Code <a href="http://www.thesac.org.uk/" target="_blank">http://www.thesac.org.uk/</a></p><p> </p><p>and the Accreditation Network UK <a href="http://www.anuk.org.uk/aboutus/aboutus.asp" target="_blank">http://www.anuk.org.uk/aboutus/aboutus.asp</a>.</p><p> </p><p>These Codes of Practice protect students’ rights to safe, good quality accommodation, wherever they are studying. They outline what students can expect from their accommodation as well as their responsibilities as tenants.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Some other private providers offer student accommodation, off campus, on the basis of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST). For students in these properties, rents would be set by the landlord at the market rent achievable for that type of accommodation. Under Section 22 of the Housing Act 1988, if an AST tenant considers the rent to be excessive, he or she could apply to the first tier tribunal for a determination of the rent. Given these protections, Government has no plans to act in this area.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In addition, since 2012, the Key Information Set includes information on the average cost of accommodation for each HEI. This is available via the national Unistats website: <a href="https://unistats.direct.gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://unistats.direct.gov.uk/</a></p><p> </p><p><br> <br></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p> </p><p>Providing Royal Mail maintains its network of access points in accordance with the framework set by Ofcom, the postal regulator, decisions relating to local post boxes are made on operational grounds by Royal Mail’s management. The company’s decisions are not subject to a consultation procedure though it does have a system of notifying and advising customers where the removal or relocation of a post box is considered necessary.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Following a consultation last year, Ofcom enhanced regulatory protection to cover all UK addresses. This was based on extensive market research to inform its understanding of the reasonable needs of postal users. Royal Mail is now required to ensure that there is a post box within 0.5 miles of at least 98% of delivery points (i.e. addresses) nationally; and for the remaining 2% of delivery points, Royal Mail must provide or procure the provision of access to the universal service by other means (for example, collection on delivery from very remote or isolated locations such as farmhouses) to meet the reasonable needs of users. Ofcom monitors Royal Mail’s national provision of access under this framework.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Royal Mail is currently exceeding the agreed level of provision on a national basis.</p><p> </p>
