unstar this property answer text <p>In order to comply with the Forestry Stewardship Council, UK Woodland Assurance Scheme and UK Forestry Standards, forests must contain a maximum of 75% primary species. Latest figures for forests in Scotland managed by the Church Commissioners show that they contain around 65% Sitka spruce, though that percentage was higher when the forests were first planted in the 1960s and 1970s. The remainder comprises native broadleaves and other conifer species such as Scots pine, Norway spruce, Douglas fir and open ground. Open ground makes up approximatley 19% of the area under management and mostly comprises native grasses, water (ponds, streams and rivers), heather and rock outcrops. The Church Commissioners will achieve at least 5% native broadleaves by the end of the first rotation.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Our priority remains to secure a negotiated agreement with the EU. It is however right for the government to prepare for every eventuality.</p><p>We are committed to delivering safe, secure and affordable housing to people across the country, and our exit from the EU will not change this. A key pillar of realising this commitment is our ambition to deliver 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s, which will address affordability challenges. The Department is continuing to work closely with industry and all levels of government to monitor and support the housing market.</p><p>We also made a number of announcements at the Spring Statement to continue to support the market, such as guaranteeing (through the Affordable Homes Guarantee Scheme) up to £3 billion of borrowing by housing associations in England, to support the delivery of around 30,000 affordable homes.</p><p>To further ensure a smooth transition, we have implemented legislation which will mean that on Day 1 after exit, the UK’s regulatory requirements on construction products will be the same as the EU’s requirements. In the event of a no-deal scenario, we will continue to recognise EU product requirements as valid for sale on the UK market for a time limited period after we leave the EU.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We are working to bring into force regulations on mandatory electrical safety checks in the private rented sector as soon as possible, subject to parliamentary approval and timetable. As outlined in the Government response to the consultation on Electrical Safety in the Private Rented Sector, published on 29 January 2019, we will work with industry to produce guidance for landlords setting out the skills and qualifications relevant to determining competence of those carrying out electrical inspections. We intend to work with local authorities in England as we develop the range of sanctions available to them for non-compliance.</p><p>We regularly consult with stakeholder groups including tenants, and in July 2018, we updated our ‘How to’ guides, a series of checklists for renting in England which must be provided to tenants at the outset of all new tenancies. Further consultation with tenant groups will take place when the Electrical Safety Regulations come into force to raise tenant awareness about the changes and the ‘How to’ guides will be updated accordingly.</p>
