star this property answer text <p>There are many different reasons why an individual may sleep rough, and it is often a highly complex and unique situation. We are committed to alleviating all forms of homelessness and want to make sure we get to the root of the problem unique to every local authority, tackling the complex range of reasons why people are homeless. That is why localised funding and plans are so important to dealing with the issue, and we are determined to provide local authorities with tailored support for their specific challenges.</p><p>Government commissioned independent research better to understand the causes of homelessness and rough sleeping. This was published on 25 March 2019 and can be (attached) found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/causes-of-homelessness-and-rough-sleeping-feasibility-study" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/causes-of-homelessness-and-rough-sleeping-feasibility-study</a>.</p><p>No one should ever have to sleep rough. That is why last summer we published the cross-government Rough Sleeping Strategy. This sets out an ambitious £100 million package to help people who sleep rough now, but also puts in place the structures that will end rough sleeping once and for all. The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period.</p><p>Through programmes such as the Rough Sleeping Initiative (RSI) and the Rapid Rehousing Pathway, we are delivering services that get people the help they need, as soon as they need it. This has already made a real difference throughout the country with the RSI enabling local authorities to provide a number of services, including over 1,750 new bed spaces and 500 staff in its first year, in collaboration with our expert rough sleeping advisers.</p><p>More information on these programmes can be found on the gov.uk website at the (attached) following links: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/james-brokenshire-announces-30-million-immediate-support-for-rough-sleepers" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/james-brokenshire-announces-30-million-immediate-support-for-rough-sleepers</a> (Rough Sleeping Initiative 2018/19 funding) <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/james-brokenshire-confirms-funding-to-help-people-off-the-streets" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/james-brokenshire-confirms-funding-to-help-people-off-the-streets</a> (Rough Sleeping Initiative 2019/20 funding) <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/rapid-rehousing-pathway-2019-to-2020-funding-allocations" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/rapid-rehousing-pathway-2019-to-2020-funding-allocations</a> (Rapid Rehousing Pathway)</p><p> </p>

This sets out an ambitious £100 million package to help people who sleep rough now, but also puts in place the structures that will end rough sleeping once and for all. The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period.</p><p>This Government, and my Department, has policy responsibility for setting the national framework for homelessness and rough sleeping policy in England alone. It should be noted therefore that the interventions detailed in this response refer to England alone.</p><p>In its first year, our Rough Sleeping Initiative (RSI) provided over 1,750 new bed spaces and 500 staff. This year we have expanded the RSI with investment of £46 million for 246 areas – providing funding for an estimated 2,600 bed spaces and 750 staff.</p><p>We know that many rough sleepers have substance misuse needs, and also that rough sleepers can struggle to access the support they need to tackle substance dependency. As set out in the Rough Sleeping Strategy we are conducting a rapid audit of health service provision to rough sleepers, including mental health and substance misuse treatment; £2 million has been allocated to test community-based models of access to health services for rough sleepers, including substance misuse services, and new training is being made available for front-line workers to help them support rough sleepers under the influence of new psychoactive substances such as spice.</p><p>We are also working across Government to ensure that rough sleepers who require treatment for substance misuse have access to the appropriate services. This includes working with the Home Office to ensure rough sleepers are considered in the forthcoming Alcohol Strategy, and continuing to support the forthcoming independent review of drugs policy, led by Dame Carol Black.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The updated National Planning Policy Framework, published in July last year, strengthened policy on the use of previously-developed land. It made clear that local authorities' strategic policies should make as much use as possible of brownfield sites in meeting development needs, and that planning policies and decisions should give substantial weight to the value of using suitable brownfield land within settlements. The Framework sets out a range of policies to help local authorities achieve this, including the use of minimum density standards for homes where appropriate.</p> more like this
