star this property answer text <p>At present, the Government does not collect this data. A recent report by Habinteg suggests that less than a third of all English local plans currently set specific requirements for a percentage of new homes to be built to accessible or adaptable standards.</p><p>We have strengthened policy in the revised National Planning Policy Framework, published in July 2018, so that local planning authorities are expected to put in place specific policies to address the housing needs of older and disabled people. We have also strengthened the policy approach to accessible housing by setting out an expectation that planning policies for housing should make use of government standards for accessible and adaptable housing.</p> more like this

Most types of new building are inappropriate there, and should be refused permission unless in very special circumstances. Only in exceptional circumstances may a Green Belt boundary be altered, using the Local Plan process of consultation of consultation, followed by rigorous examination of the revised Plan. By clarifying the exceptional circumstances test and increasing support for higher density and re-use of brownfield land, our revised National Planning Policy Framework gives local authorities more power to protect their Green Belts and manage the allocation of land for development.</p>

While this is principally a matter for those professionals and their insurers, we are in contact with trade bodies and insurance bodies to consider whether and how government can help. We are working with the Association for Consultant Approved Inspectors and insurance bodies to look at options for helping Approved Inspectors to secure insurance that provides adequate cover for their clients, residents and the firms themselves. In parallel, we intend to review the role of Approved Inspectors under the future building safety system, as part of which we will review the insurance requirements for the sector.</p> more like this
