star this property answer text <p>Abingdon Green is owned by the House of Commons but day to day access is delegated by the Clerk of the House to Black Rod. Current policy is to allow public access to the Green to enable them to pass through on the paths or to use it as a recreational space. Because of the unique views that the Green affords to Parliament, we also allow the media to use the Green for the contemporaneous news reporting of events within Parliament on the basis that this is an important way of communicating to the public the political issues that are taking place. We do not permit protests or campaigning on the Green.</p><p>There are occasions when events in Parliament create exceptional media activity and demand for broadcasting space on the Green. When this occurs, we conduct a careful assessment on whether to prioritise broadcasting over public access and where the balance of public interest lies. Although we prefer to maintain dual use of the Green by public and media, on some occasions we assess that reporting from the Green must be prioritised and that it is necessary to close it to the public for safety reasons. Not to do so would limit the ability of a wide section of the broadcast media, both national, international and radio to provide high quality coverage of unfolding events in Parliament and interview the politicians involved in a secure manner.</p><p>Regarding a permanent media centre, no consideration is currently being given to this. Most media (including broadcast) arrangements are covered through the existing press lobby arrangements. Under this, nominated members of the media are accredited with membership of the Press Gallery and allocated desk space within the House of Commons and given press passes which allow access to the building. This is a long standing arrangement administered by the House of Commons with well understood rules which enables open media access to Parliament to be maintained within manageable levels.</p><p>Additionally, as well as Abingdon Green, there are broadcast points within both Houses which are used by UK domestic broadcasters for the reporting of Parliamentary business.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

The Taskforce will drive forward the implementation and delivery of our Rough Sleeping Strategy to achieve our commitment. Alongside the Taskforce, we have an expert Rough Sleeping Advisory Panel formed of key representatives from the homelessness sector and local government who fed into the Strategy and will continue to meet.</p><p>We are also committed to working with all local authorities as we move towards a country where no one should ever sleep rough through our Rough Sleeping Initiative, in which we are providing 1,750 additional bed spaces for rough sleepers and an additional 531 dedicated homelessness workers. We are also working with local areas through measures set out in our Rough Sleeping Strategy such as the Rapid Rehousing Pathway, strengthening local homelessness strategies and supporting Health and Wellbeing Boards to recognise and respond to the health needs of people who sleep rough.</p>

Our priorities are to boost housing supply and to build more affordable homes, supporting the different needs of a wide range of people and built by a range developers, including SMEs. This is done through over £9 billion Affordable Homes Programme to March 2022 which will deliver 250,000 new affordable homes of a wide range of tenures, including social rent. Since 2010, we have delivered over 407,000 new affordable homes, including over 293,000 affordable homes for rent.</p><p>SMEs also contribute towards the production of affordable housing, including social housing through section 106 agreements with local authorities. The national policy on developer contributions from small sites seeks to strike a balance between increasing self-build and small-scale housing development, while recognising the role of section 106 in helping to provide affordable housing. We continue to provide support to SMEs to build more homes through the £2.5 billion Home Building Fund’s short-term fund, a £1 billion SME guarantees scheme announced at Budget 2018 and changes to the small sites policy in the National Planning Policy Framework.</p>
