answer text <p> </p><p><em>[Holding Reply: Monday 7 April 2014]</em></p><p>We do not collect this information centrally. These are local schemes, and it is for local authorities to ensure that the effect on specific groups of council tax payers is proportionate and fair.</p><p>Spending on council tax benefit doubled under the last Government, costing taxpayers £4 billion a year – equivalent to almost £180 a year per household. Welfare reform is vital to tackle the budget deficit left by the last Administration. Our reforms to localise council tax support now give councils stronger incentives to support local firms, cut fraud, promote local enterprise and get people into work. We are ending the last Administration's ‘something for nothing' culture and making work pay.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>We published the revised National Planning Policy Framework in 2018, setting out national planning policies for supporting high quality communications in England. These include that the planning policies and decisions of local planning authorities should support the expansion of electronic communications networks, such as 5G.</p><p>We have also introduced a range of permitted development rights to support the delivery of mobile infrastructure, including legislating for higher masts in 2016, whilst also protecting local amenity.</p><p>We hope that these measures will be used by industry, alongside proactive engagement with the planning system, to ensure delivery of 5G.

answer text <p>This Government is investing £9.4 billion to deliver 400,000 affordable housing starts by March 2021, including Shared Ownership, Rent to Buy, Affordable Rent and Starter Homes – the largest housing programme by any government since the 1970s. Government has recently agreed a major package of funding for London - £3.15 billion over the period 2015 to 2021, to deliver at least 90,000 affordable homes by March 2021. These include at least 58,500 homes that provide working Londoners with the opportunities to own a home over time – homes for shared ownership and homes offered at ‘London Living Rent’ that will actively support tenants into home ownership within ten years. London will also get a share of the additional £1.4 billion investment in the Affordable Homes Programme announced at Autumn Statement.</p><p>Any worker can benefit from all our housing offers, provided that they are otherwise unable to afford to purchase or rent on the open market and meet the eligibility criteria. Many local authorities also provide their own local housing schemes for local workers. They can also benefit from our London Help to Buy, with up to 40% equity loan.</p>

answer text <p>Care leavers on low incomes will be entitled to support under local council tax support schemes. They may also be entitled to existing council tax discounts or exemptions, for example by virtue of being students or single occupiers. Local authorities have broad discretion to grant discounts to individuals or groups in other circumstances, and they may wish to consider providing support specifically to care leavers.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Ensuring that young people leaving care have accommodation and support that is suitable for their needs is a priority for this Government. The homelessness legislation provides a strong safety net for vulnerable people. Care leavers aged 18-21 facing homelessness have a priority need for accommodation, as do vulnerable care leavers who are older than 21.</p><p>We have funded youth homelessness agency St Basils to develop and support the roll-out of the Positive Pathway Framework. This supports local authority children’s services and housing teams and other local partners to work together to prevent homelessness and meet the housing and support needs of vulnerable young people, including care leavers. To build on this, we supported St Basils to develop a specific Care Leavers Accommodation and Support Framework, in partnership with Barnardo’s, in 2015.</p><p>We have also invested £15 million in the Fair Chance Fund, a payment by results programme which aims to test new approaches to improving accommodation, employment and training outcomes for vulnerable homeless 18-25 year olds. Over 200 of the young people on the programme have previously been looked after.</p><p>We will ensure that vulnerable young people who are in need of support for their housing needs continue to receive it.</p>

answer text <p>Whether mixed-aged couples can claim council tax support depends on a range of factors including the age of a claimant, the benefits they and/or their partner receive, and the design of local schemes. The changes to pension credit due to take effect from 15 May 2019 may mean some households are no longer eligible for the pensioner element of council tax support schemes, but may be eligible for local working-age schemes.</p> more like this
