These include that the planning policies and decisions of local planning authorities should support the expansion of electronic communications networks, such as 5G.</p><p>We have also introduced a range of permitted development rights to support the delivery of mobile infrastructure, including legislating for higher masts in 2016, whilst also protecting local amenity.</p><p>We hope that these measures will be used by industry, alongside proactive engagement with the planning system, to ensure delivery of 5G.

star this property answer text <p>Whether mixed-aged couples can claim council tax support depends on a range of factors including the age of a claimant, the benefits they and/or their partner receive, and the design of local schemes. The changes to pension credit due to take effect from 15 May 2019 may mean some households are no longer eligible for the pensioner element of council tax support schemes, but may be eligible for local working-age schemes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Measuring “hidden homelessness” is a complex issue. It will always be difficult by its nature – people are often not in contact with services, and it is challenging to establish everything that is going on in people’s lives. <br> <br> The Department does collect information on overcrowding and on concealed households (usually defined as single adults or groups of adults, with or without children, who occupy the accommodation with, but do not belong to, the household reference person’s family unit) through the English Housing Survey. Additional information is being collected through this survey to identify people who have experienced homelessness. <br> <br> The Homelessness Reduction Act brings more people such as single homeless households into scope to receive assistance from their local authority. These households were not assisted or reported through the old P1E collection, until the end of March 2018. Details on these non-priority need, single households often living with friends and family have been captured through the Department’s new case level data collection system, Homelessness Case Level Information Collection (H-CLIC), since April 2018. This data can be found online here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-homelessness" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-homelessness</a><br> <br> The new data collection system, H-CLIC, captures information on households approaching for and receiving homelessness assistance, household demographics and the circumstances surrounding their homelessness. This includes any support needs of the homeless household. In time it will enable MHCLG to monitor repeat homelessness where people come back to services. It will help identify more detail on the circumstances of households vulnerable to homelessness and the interventions that are successful in preventing homelessness in the first place.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In England, the Regulator of Social Housing requires registered providers to maintain their homes to the Decent Homes Standard. That includes a requirement to provide reasonably modern facilities and services. The Standard does not require social landlords to provide essential household items such as households goods or furnishings.</p><p>Where people need it, the Government provides a strong safety net through the welfare system for those who need extra support, including a system of hardship payments and benefit advances. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) may also be able to offer support for those that need help with the costs of intermittent expenses that are considered difficult to budget for, including furniture. For those on Universal Credit, budgeting advances provide access to interest free payments for one-off items. For those on other DWP means-tested benefits interest free budgeting loans are available.</p><p> </p> more like this
