star this property answer text <p>We agree that where there are complex delivery and co-ordination challenges, development corporations can be the right vehicles to drive forward high-quality new communities at scale.</p><p>That is why we passed regulations in July 2018 to enable the creation of locally-led New Town Development Corporations, overseen not by the Secretary of State as was previously the case, but by local authorities.In addition, at Autumn Budget 2018, we announced that we would launch a consultation on the legislative framework for development corporations – to ensure they have the powers they need to deliver. We will also be launching a £10 million competitive fund, supported with advice from Sir George Iacobescu, to enable local areas to generate locally-led proposals for new business‑backed development corporations and similar delivery bodies.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is not intending to bring forward legislation with respect to carbon dioxide alarms at this present time. It is, however, conducting a review to establish whether requirements to install carbon monoxide (CO) alarms in private rented properties should be extended to cover any fuel-burning appliance and whether the requirements should also extend to social housing. The findings of this review will be considered alongside responses to our social housing green paper and we plan to set out the Government response to this in due course.</p><p>The law already requires that private landlords install a carbon monoxide alarm in any room having a solid fuel heating appliance. Private landlords are also required to ensure that the alarms are in working order on the first day of the tenancy. Failure to comply with the regulations can result in a penalty of up to £5,000.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government's approach to transposition of the two Institutions for Occupational Retirement Provision Directives for the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) reflects the fact that it is a statutory public service scheme. The appropriate response is therefore different than it is for other, trust-based schemes. Having taken legal advice, our view is that the current governance arrangements of the LGPS, set out in the LGPS Regulations and the broader suite of local authorities' statutory obligations, are sufficient to meet the objectives of the directive. The Department of Work and Pensions has led for the UK Government on negotiation and transposition of the directives with the EU Commission and any request to see correspondence with the Commission should be addressed to them.</p> more like this
