star this property answer text <p>The R&amp;R Programme Team carried out work with the Government Property Unit to assess the suitability of sites on the Government estate for relocation of the House of Lords during the restoration and renewal works on the Palace of Westminster. One of the options involved use of the courtyard of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office building in King Charles Street. However, this was considered to be a sub-optimal solution that would require further decant accommodation to be delivered over multiple locations and had space constraints around the Chamber. Concerns were also raised in relation to security and access to the site for construction. Subsequent work has identified the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre as the most suitable decant location for the House of Lords. The House of Lords Commission agreed the QEII Centre as the preferred option for decant in September 2018.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Summer Budget stated “the government will introduce a new approach to station redevelopment and commercial land sales on the rail network, building on the experience of regenerating land around Kings Cross Station and Stratford in East London – the government will establish a dedicated body to focus on pursuing opportunities to realise value from public land and property assets in the rail network to both maximise the benefit to local communities and reduce the burden of public debt”. Discussions are taking place to develop an approach that maximises value for the taxpayer and supports the safe and efficient operation of the rail network.</p><br /><p>The disposal of Network Rail’s assets must be in accordance with its network licence, which is regulated by the Office of Rail and Road. London and Continental Railways’ asset disposals are approved by the company’s board and the Department for Transport.</p><br /><p>Sale contracts for land will not impose conditions on the seller in relation to noise and vibration. Proximity to the railway and related issues such as noise and vibration are generally considered as part of the planning process, which is regulated by the relevant planning authority in accordance with environmental legislation.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The current European Infrastructure Technical Standard for Interoperability (TSI) allows platform heights of 550mm or 760mm above rail level (ARL). In addition, the UK currently has a ‘National Technical Rule’ which includes a ‘Specific Case’ allowing platform heights of 915mm ARL, reflecting the historic platform height on the majority of our existing network.</p><p> </p><p>HS2 is not, as such, proposing to specify a train floor height. What we will be asking rolling stock manufacturers (RSMs) to do is to provide level access to a platform height of 1115mm, or, if they do not believe that is achievable, to tell us at what height platform they could provide level access.</p><p> </p><p>We have proposed to the European Commission an amendment to the current European standards to allow for our preferred platform height and we remain in discussions with them with a view to securing the ability to adopt our preferred platform height through these or alternative means.</p> more like this
