answer text <p>The review of permitted development rights for the change of use to residential will consider the quality standards of the homes delivered in England. This will consider matters relating to size, location, amenity and design. <br> <br> In addition, as part of its implementation plan for the Hackitt review, the Government has said that it will review the Building Regulations guidance. Any issues that are identified, such as space or daylight could contribute to our ongoing consideration of building regulations. The Government will set out its detailed plans in due course.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Generally, when a planning permission is granted, the development must commence within three years. The intention behind this time limit is to prevent the accumulation of planning permissions which are unimplemented. It also allows councils to review the development’s suitability in the light of circumstances which may have altered over the three year period</p><p><br>When new Building Regulations are introduced, time limited transitional provisions are normally included. Transitional provisions are kept under review for changes to Building Regulations.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Decent Homes Standard has driven improvements to the quality of social housing. Between 2011 and 2016 Government provided a total of £1.76 billion to 45 councils across England to tackle the backlog of non-decent homes, making over 158,000 homes decent.</p><p>Local Authority Housing Statistics show that the proportion of non-decent local authority dwellings was 4 per cent 1 April 2018. The English Housing Survey shows that, in 2017, 13 per cent of social rented homes overall (516,000) were considered non-decent, down from 20 per cent (759,000) in 2010. This is lower than the proportion of private rented (25 per cent) and owner occupied (19 per cent) homes.</p><p>The Social Housing Green Paper asks if there are any changes to what constitutes a decent home that we should consider, and whether we need additional measures to make sure homes are safe and decent. We are currently considering the responses to the consultation.</p> more like this
