unstar this property answer text <p>The National Planning Policy Framework provides strong protection for irreplaceable habitats such as ancient woodland and veteran trees. In addition, on 7 February we published the Housing White Paper, <em>Fixing our broken housing market</em>. Through this we are consulting on placing our policy to include ancient woodland and veteran trees alongside other national policies which the Government regards as providing a strong reason to restrict development when preparing plans, or which indicate that development should be restricted when making decisions on planning applications. These policies include those on Sites of Special Scientific Interest, Green Belt, National Parks and designated heritage assets. The consultation closes on 2 May, and is available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/590464/Fixing_our_broken_housing_market_-_print_ready_version.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/590464/Fixing_our_broken_housing_market_-_print_ready_version.pdf</a></p>

The Government has put in place a £3.6 billion package of transitional relief to support those businesses facing an increase. Additionally, my Department has been working closely with the Treasury to determine how best to provide further support to those businesses with the steepest increases.</p><p>A package of support was subsequently announced at the Budget on 8 March. It includes £110 million to support rate-payers losing small business rates relief and rural rate relief as a result of the 2017 revaluation, as well as a £300 million discretionary relief fund for local authorities to help individual businesses that are having the greatest difficulties paying increased rates bills.</p> more like this

This government has put in place a range of measures to reform the behaviour of private parking companies, including the banning of wheel clamping and towing. We are currently considering further reform.</p><p>In order to get access to vehicle keeper data from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency private parking companies must be a member of an Accredited Trade Association (ATA). They must operate under the ATA’s code of practice and provide free access to an independent appeals process. If a company fails to comply with the code of practice, it can be suspended or expelled.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>One person without a home is one too many. That is why the Government is clear that prevention must be at the heart of everything we do to reduce homelessness. We are investing £500 million to prevent, relieve and reduce homelessness across this Parliament. This includes protecting homelessness prevention funding for local authorities, which will amount to £315 million by 2019-20, to help them continue to provide quality advice and assistance to everyone who approaches them for help. Since 2010, local authorities have helped prevent or relieve over one million cases of homelessness.</p><p>Reducing homelessness is a complex issue. The causes are varied and driven by issues such as health, education, justice, welfare, and employment. That is why we have increased central investment to tackle homelessness over the next four years to £139 million, including a new £10 million Social Impact Bond to support rough sleepers with the most complex needs. This builds on the success of the world’s first homelessness Social Impact Bond, run by the Greater London Authority to turn round the lives around of 830 of London’s most entrenched rough sleepers. Over half have achieved accommodation, employment or reconnection outcomes.</p><p>In addition we have invested £15 million to improve outcomes for young people through the Fair Chance Fund. This funding is turning around the lives of around 1,900 18 to 25 year olds with complex and overlapping needs, by supporting them into accommodation, education, training and employment.</p><p>We also announced in the Budget an additional £100 million to deliver low cost ‘move on’ accommodation to enable people leaving hostels and refuges to make a sustainable recovery from a homelessness crisis, providing at least 2,000 places for vulnerable people to enable independent living. I am also considering Bob Blackman MP's Homelessness Reduction Bill 2016-17.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
