star this property answer text <p>The Building Regulations in England set minimum fire safety requirements for new homes and non-domestic buildings. They are couched in functional terms, and the Building Regulation guidance sets performance recommendations rather than prescribing the materials or technologies to be used. Similar provisions exist in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. For example, Building Regulation guidance for fire resistance is provided in terms of ratings , these can be achieved by a range of materials and designs (e.g. steel, concrete, wood) by demonstrating they have met the requirements through recognised test methods and classifications. The Guidance for England has recently been revised in a new clearer format and is available on-line at; <a href="https://gbr01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gov.uk%2Fgovernment%2Fpublications%2Ffire-safety-approved-document-b&amp;data=02%7C01%7CBrian.Martin%40communities.gov.uk%7C171a3f8e4e0a4e9b3c2408d709e3b0f1%7Cbf3468109c7d43dea87224a2ef3995a8%7C0%7C0%7C636988745832773114&amp;sdata=rmZXMlv9xsWBMNqx4pNlOP4H3RZHOfb%2BdWMJFwpvMXE%3D&amp;reserved=0" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/fire-safety-approved-document-b</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>There is a clear link between ageing and the need for more accessible housing. The National Planning Policy Framework expects planning authorities to have specific policies to address the housing needs of older people and we have recently published new guidance to help councils implement these policies.</p><p>The Framework expects local planning authorities to use the Government’s standards for accessible and adaptable housing when preparing their plans, where this would address an identified need. In addition, the Government has also recently announced that it will consult on mandating higher accessibility standards for new housing.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In the revised National Planning Policy Framework, we strengthened policy to create a clear expectation that all local authorities have policies in place for addressing the housing needs of older people. All plans submitted to the Planning Inspectorate after 24 January 2019 will need to comply with the revised Framework. We will publish new planning guidance shortly that will provide advice to authorities about implementing this policy. The number of authorities with their own detailed planning guidance on the provision of specialist housing for older people is not recorded.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Providing more homes for older people is vital to support an ageing population. Offering older people a better choice of accommodation can help them to live independently for longer and help reduce costs to social care and the health system. Our proposals, set out in the White Paper<strong> ‘</strong>Fixing our broken housing market’, underline our commitment to do more to provide the homes we need for all in our society, including for older and disabled people. In the White Paper we also recognised and committed to explore the barriers for older people moving at the right time to the right property, to build on evidence to deliver outcomes that are best for older people, including finding sustainable solutions and explore ways to stimulate the market to deliver new homes for older people.</p><p>We also published, in July 2018, the new version of the National Planning Policy Framework, which expressly requires local plans to include a detailed needs assessment for housing our older and disabled populations. We will shortly be publishing further guidance to help councils put these policies in place.</p>
