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>The Government recognises that the provision of high quality,impartial, information and advice in England is an important service which older people, and their relatives and carers should have access to in order to make informed choices. The Department of Health and Social Care has set out that one of the key principles that will guide thinking ahead of the Social Care Green Paper is control. This involves ensuring that individuals and families have the ability to direct the support they receive, the autonomy to lead the lives they want, and access to reliable information.</p><p>On 28 March, we announced our plans to implement the majority of the Law Commission’s recommendations to reform event fees in leasehold retirement properties. One of the key requirements of these recommendations is a statutorily backed requirement to ensure consumers have the necessary information to make an informed choice when purchasing their retirement property.( <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2019-03-28/HCWS1466" target="_blank">https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2019-03-28/HCWS1466</a>)</p><p>My Department published the revised National Planning Policy Framework in July 2018 and this specifies that local planning authorities are expected to have planning policies which identify the size, type and tenure of homes needed for different groups in the community including older people. We will shortly be publishing further guidance to help councils put these policies in place. My Department, together with Department of Health and Social Care, also grant funds new supply of supported housing (with 34,000 new units delivered since 2011) including for older vulnerable people. With our announcement last year that funding for housing costs for supported accommodation would continue to be paid through Housing Benefit, we are putting in place the right funding and oversight environment which will give confidence to investors and to the sector, to continue to develop new supply of supported housing.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the importance of local funding for support services for vulnerable people including those over 55.</p><p>The funding for housing related support services is subsumed within the local government finance settlement. This funding was ring-fenced until 2009, when the ring-fence was removed thus allowing all local authorities to manage funding according to local priorities. It is up to local authorities to decide which services they wish to fund.</p><p>We are currently undertaking a review of housing related-support, to help us better understand how housing and support fit together. The review will give us a fuller picture into how housing-related support is provided for supported housing across England.</p><p>The Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) can also support all eligible, including older, people to adapt their homes, to make them safe and suitable for their needs. Since 2012-13, the Government has invested more than £2.2 billion into the Grant, providing around 280,000 adaptations by the end of 2018-19. The grant has more than doubled from £220 million in 2015-16 to £505 million in 2019-20. The DFG is ring-fenced ensuring local authorities are providing necessary adaptations and not re-purposing it elsewhere.</p>
