star this property answer text <p>For the purposes of the Department's annual rough sleeping estimates, the definition is as follows: People sleeping, about to bed down (sitting on/in or standing next to their bedding) or actually bedded down in the open air (such as on the streets, in tents, doorways, parks, bus shelters or encampments). People in buildings or other places not designed for habitation (such as stairwells, barns, sheds, car parks, cars, derelict boats, stations, or “bashes” which are makeshift shelters, often comprised of cardboard boxes).<em><em> <br></em></em><br>Nobody should ever have to sleep rough. We have already allocated £30 million of funding specifically to support rough sleepers, including people at risk of sleeping rough, new rough sleepers and those with the most complex needs - our ambition is to halve rough sleeping by 2022, eliminating it by 2027.</p> more like this

We expect all housing developers to deliver good quality housing, deliver it on time and to treat house buyers fairly, resolving any problems quickly. All new homes are also subject to supervision by Building Control – local authorities and approved inspectors. DCLG Minsters will continue to raise the issue of quality regularly when they meet with the industry.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The National Planning Policy Framework is clear that councils should plan for a mix of housing, based on the needs of different groups in the community, including disabled people. All new homes must have minimum levels of accessibility and local authorities are able to require higher levels of accessibility where it is properly justified, taking account of local need and viability. Through the Housing White Paper we set out proposals to reinforce these expectations, and have introduced a new statutory duty on the Secretary of State to produce guidance for local planning authorities on how their development documents should meet the housing needs of older and disabled people.</p> more like this
