answer text <p>The National Planning Policy Framework and its accompanying planning practice guidance provide clear expectations on adaptation and resilience to a changing climate. All development plans should take a proactive approach to mitigating and adapting to climate change, taking account of the implications for flood risk, coastal change, water supply, biodiversity, landscapes and risks of overheating from rising temperatures.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government does not collect data on the number of housing transactions which fall through. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the fall through rate is around 25 per cent, which is why the Government is working with industry to trial reservation agreements which will increase commitment between buyers and sellers and should reduce the failure rate.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 is helping to drive up standards in the private and social rented sectors by putting an obligation on landlords to ensure that any rented residential properties are free of all hazards, including overcrowding, from which a risk of harm may arise to the health or safety of the tenant or another occupier of the property. This requirement applies from the outset and for the duration of the tenancy.</p><p>This Department has not made a specific assessment of the implications for properties that are smaller than 13 square metres in relation to the Homes Act. The courts will decide whether a property is fit for human habitation by considering the matters set out in section 10 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, which includes the ‘overcrowding’ hazard prescribed in the Housing Health and Safety (England) Regulations 2005. Each property is assessed on its own merits, and if a property is so small as to be hazardously overcrowded, tenants will have the right to take action in the courts for breach of contract on the grounds that the property is unfit for human habitation.</p><p>Government is also reviewing the hazards set out in the 2005 Regulations as part of the comprehensive review of the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS).</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The Government does not collect data on the costs to vendors of residential property transactions which fall through. In a 2017 Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy survey, the average cost for a failed transaction for those respondents who only sold a property was £582, for those sellers who also bought a property it was £740 and for sellers who never successfully sold it was £650.</p> more like this

answer text <p>We are not publishing details which will identify buildings because of the risk to public safety. Details of every building identified as having unsafe Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding systems are provided to the relevant local authority and fire and rescue service, and every building is visited by the local fire and rescue service to ensure appropriate safety measures are put in place. We continue to push hard to further accelerate remediation in all cases and, in the private sector, to ensure leaseholders are protected from bearing the costs.</p> more like this

We remain committed to supporting those councils that wish to combine to serve their communities better, and will consider unitarisation and mergers between councils when locally requested.</p> more like this
