Since 2015, over 10 per cent of additional Affordable Homes have been delivered in villages with a population of fewer than 3000 and we recognise the importance of these settlements for both economic and housing growth.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Nothing is more important than ensuring people are safe in their homes. Residents’ voices need to be heard to ensure proper standards are maintained and that where things are going wrong they are picked up and addressed. We want to ensure that there is a coherent and consistent approach to regulation to deliver these objectives, and achieve the best deal for tenants and landlords. Our review of social housing regulation is exploring the most appropriate way of doing so, and we will publish the results of that review in due course.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government has set out an ambitious package of long-term reform to make the housing market work. We are taking end-to-end action across the housing system with measures to: release more land for homes where people want to live, build the homes we need faster, get more people building homes, and support people who need help now. We have committed more than £44 billion of financial support over five years to 2022/2023 to boost the delivery of housing and unblock barriers to more housebuilding.</p><p>We are also committed to ensuring that new homes are of good quality. In 2018, we announced a dedicated ombudsman for buyers of new homes and we intend to introduce legislation to require developers of new build homes to belong to a New Homes Ombudsman. The revised National Planning Policy Framework places a strong emphasis on design and makes clear that developments should be visually attractive and add to the overall quality of the area.</p><p>Our interventions are making a difference. Last year 222,190 homes were delivered, the highest in all but one of the last thirty years. This year numbers are expected to rise again, representing the 7<sup>th</sup> consecutive year of growth.</p>

answer text <p>Following the Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017, the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) published comprehensive guidance for buildings, such as those with ACM cladding, on what arrangements and interim measures should be established where “stay put” has been suspended. The NFCC carefully reviewed its guidance and reaffirmed the principle of “stay put” where it is appropriate. Its statement on this can be viewed at <a href="http://www.nationalfirechiefs.org.uk/Stay-Put-position." target="_blank">http://www.nationalfirechiefs.org.uk/Stay-Put-position.</a></p><p>The Home Office has no plans to commission a national review of stay put advice. However, the government recognises that questions have been raised about means of escape from blocks of flats and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has commenced a technical review of Building Regulation guidance through a call for evidence on 18 December 2018. This call for evidence identified topics which were candidates for inclusion in the review of Approved Document B (Fire Safety). One of the topics was means of escape in blocks of flats, including the stay-put approach. The call for evidence closed on 15 March 2019 and the Department is in the process of reviewing the evidence provided.</p>

answer text <p>For more than a decade, registered providers of social housing were able to increase the rent on Social Rent properties by an additional £2 per week if the rent was below the 'formula' level. This mechanism was phased out in 2015 and the Government has no plans to reinstate it, as this would be likely to result in additional costs to tenants and taxpayers</p><p><br> The Government recently consulted on social housing rents for the period 2020-25. The outcome of that consultation and the Government policy statement is available via the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/rents-for-social-housing-from-2020-to-2021" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/rents-for-social-housing-from-2020-to-2021</a>.</p> more like this
