star this property answer text <p>a) This government is committed to levelling up the regions, so that people can benefit in our shared prosperity. On 6 September we announced the 100 places we have invited to develop proposals for Town Deals as part of the £3.6 billion Towns Fund announced on 27 July. 45 of these places are in the Northern Powerhouse, 18 of which are in the North East. Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland will also benefit from £600 million of investment in jobs and infrastructure under the North of Tyne Devolution Deal, whilst the Tees Valley Devolution Deal is worth £450 million. Additionally, of the £3.4 billion of Local Growth Funding that has gone to the Northern Powerhouse, £505.6 million has been allocated to the North East and Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnerships. <br> <br> b) The position of Minister for the Northern Powerhouse was first created in 2015 to drive economic growth in the North and ensure the needs of the North of England are represented in government. I was appointed Minister for the Northern Powerhouse and Local Growth in June 2017 and I was re-appointed on 25 July 2019 as Minister of State attending Cabinet, showing that the Northern Powerhouse remains at the heart of this government’s agenda.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Sprinkler systems are already required through building regulations for high rise buildings over 30 metres. Our view remains that the retrofitting of sprinklers will not always be the most effective fire safety measure in existing residential buildings, but it should be for building owners to assess the risks based on the building design and take action, in consultation with residents, if necessary. I am aware that a number of local authorities are either taking, or considering taking, action on the retrofitting of sprinklers. Our proposals for a safety case review regime for existing buildings should also help owners and residents determine the most appropriate fire safety measures going forward. We are also focused on the position for new build, where it is easier to incorporate sprinkler systems from the outset. Our call for evidence on the technical review of fire safety guidance closed on 18 March, and that included questions on sprinkler provision, where the responses are being analysed.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department does not hold comprehensive data on planned completion dates for the remediation of ACM (Aluminium Composite Material) buildings. The Government has provided £600 million funding to remove unsafe ACM cladding from high rise residential buildings in the social and private sector. This will remove the biggest blocker to progress on remediation in these buildings. However, it is important to recognise remediation work cannot be done overnight, and it must be done properly. The time to complete work varies considerably depending on the factors such as structure, extent of cladding, and existing fire safety systems. For many buildings this is a complex job involving major construction work. We want buildings to be remediated as quickly as possible and we will be closely monitoring the work as it progresses.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Review of Build Out Rates chaired by the Rt Hon Sir Oliver Letwin MP reported on 29 October 2018. It found no evidence that speculative land banking is part of the business model for major house-builders, or that it explains slow build-out rates. The review concluded that greater differentiation in types and tenures of new homes would increase market absorption and stimulate an increase in build-out rates. This Government has put in place extensive incentives and assistance to encourage house-building, especially on brownfield land, to support the housing policies in our revised National Planning Policy Framework.</p> more like this

This asks local authorities to optimise density in the development of towns, and to recognise the character and beauty of the countryside. Plans should focus development on sustainable locations. The Framework also makes clear that, in rural areas, housing should be located where it will enhance or maintain the vitality of rural communities.</p><p>It is for local authorities to use their plans to determine the extent of settlements, and say where essential development should go, and where restraint, such as Green Belt, is needed. One of the purposes of Green Belt is to prevent neighbouring towns merging into one another. In Green Belt, most types of new housing are to be treated as inappropriate development, and refused planning permission except in very special circumstances.</p> more like this
