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>This Government is committed to protecting the rights of tenants and giving them more security. We are aware that people are living in the private rented sector for much longer. That is why we recently consulted on ways to overcome the barriers to landlords offering longer, more secure tenancies in the private rented sector.</p><p>We are considering responses to the consultation and will be bringing forward proposals that make the system work for both tenants and landlords. Our proposals relate to tenancies in England only. We will be providing more information on our consultation response shortly.</p><p>In the meantime, there is nothing to stop tenants asking their landlord for a longer tenancy. We have published a model tenancy agreement which landlords and tenants can use as the basis for longer, family friendly tenancies, available for free at <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/model-agreement-for-a-shorthold-assured-tenancy" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/model-agreement-for-a-shorthold-assured-tenancy</a>. In addition, the measures announced in the Housing White Paper resulted in many of the largest build to rent operators offering their tenants the option of longer tenancies.</p>

Mandatory licensing is recognised to have improved safety and property standards in HMOs, the extension will bring an additional 170,000 properties within scope of mandatory licensing.</p><p>In addition, the Government is currently refreshing guidance for local authorities in order to help them better use these powers. Along with providing training sessions across the county, the updated guidance will ensure local authorities are aware of the extent of powers they have and how they can use them to maximum effect in all private rented sector properties, including HMOs.</p> more like this

We ask them to prioritise brownfield wherever practicable, and have provided support in the form of increased loan funding for site preparation, infrastructure and land assembly; new permitted development rights to put existing buildings to good use; and a reduction in the constraints on brownfield sites in Green Belt to allow more affordable homes.
