answer text <p>The Government recognises that the community-led housing sector – of which Community Land Trusts are an important part – offers significant potential for helping to meet housing need across England, especially in rural areas. In addition to helping increase the rate of delivery of new housing, the sector will help deliver a range of benefits including diversifying the housebuilding sector, improving design and construction quality, developing modern methods of construction, and sustaining local communities and local economies. The support and close involvement of the local community enables the community-led approach to secure planning permission and deliver housing that could not be brought forward through speculative development.</p><p>The principal means by which my Department supports Community Land Trusts is through the annual £60 million Community Housing Fund. This fund makes revenue and capital grant available to support community-led housebuilding schemes, and supports a programme of training and development for organisations providing technical advice and guidance to community-led housebuilding groups. The Fund is currently scheduled to close in March 2020 and decisions on funding for 2020-21 onwards are a matter for the Spending Review, which will take place this year.</p>

As of the end of April 2019, there are 175 high-rise private sector residential buildings identified with ACM. Several developers who had committed to fund remediation have agreed to maintain this commitment, and not draw on the fund. This includes Taylor Wimpey, Legal &amp; General, Mace Group, Lendlease, Barratt Developments and Aberdeen Standard Investments.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The private sector remediation fund, announced on 9 May, will cover remediation costs of all private sector high-rise (over 18 metres) residential buildings with unsafe Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding, except where a warranty claim has been accepted. To support the fund, local authorities have a range of enforcement powers, including serving improvement notices or undertaking emergency remedial work themselves. We are backing local authorities taking enforcement action where building owners are refusing to remediate high-rise buildings with unsafe cladding.  <br> <br> We are engaging with local authorities who are taking, or are considering taking, enforcement action for buildings with unsafe ACM. It is for each local authority to decide if enforcement action is appropriate on their buildings.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The annual English Housing Survey collects home ownership data (including, since 2015-16, NS-SEC data) and the most recent report showed that the rate of home ownership for 35-44 years olds has increased for the first time in over a decade. The changes in home ownership rate between 2015-16 and 2016-17 for each NS-SEC classification, including the decline for routine occupations, is not statistically significant. We will continue to monitor this closely as further data is collected.</p> more like this
