Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: High Rise Flats: Liverpool (8 Feb 2018)

Dominic Raab: The Secretary of State has made clear that building owners should do all they can to protect leaseholders from costs relating to interim measures and cladding remediation – either funding it themselves or looking at alternative routes such as insurance claims, warranties or legal action. It is important that leaseholders are able to access specialist advice to understand their rights....

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Land Use (7 Feb 2018)

Dominic Raab: We have no such plans at present. Local authorities are already required to publish registers of brownfield land suitable for housing. The registers include information relating to the ownership and planning status of land on the register. Local authorities are also required to publish planning registers containing details of all planning applications which are under consideration or...

Housing, Planning and the Green Belt (6 Feb 2018)

Dominic Raab: indicated assent.

Housing, Planning and the Green Belt (6 Feb 2018)

Dominic Raab: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Tewkesbury (Mr Robertson) on securing the debate. He made some powerful points about the supply of new homes, the type of stock and the wider issues about affordability. They were tenaciously made and duly noted by the Government. I also pay tribute to my predecessor, my hon. Friend the Member for Reading West (Alok Sharma), for the sterling job...

Housing, Planning and the Green Belt (6 Feb 2018)

Dominic Raab: I know that the hon. Lady has a great deal of experience in this regard and she is right. I suspect that what is needed is a mixture of coaxing and cajoling, carrot and stick. We must try to ensure that there is a win-win. However, it seems to the Government, and certainly to me, that there is a huge opportunity not just to build more affordable homes, but to control the process to ensure...

Housing, Planning and the Green Belt (6 Feb 2018)

Dominic Raab: The national planning policy framework makes it very clear that building on the green belt must be the last resort. Well disposed as I am towards the hon. Gentleman, he will not tempt me to start commenting on individual plans or planning applications, but I can tell him, in relation to his own local authority, that we did not have a bid for the homes infrastructure fund and we want the bids...

Housing, Planning and the Green Belt (6 Feb 2018)

Dominic Raab: I listened to my hon. Friend’s passionate, tenacious and articulate speech on behalf of the Isle of Wight. I am happy to look again at whether we can provide any support in relation to the bidding process, but we are in a Catch-22 because we will be criticised for imposing ideas on local communities—particularly the smaller ones—if we do not allow bids to be community-driven...

Housing, Planning and the Green Belt (6 Feb 2018)

Dominic Raab: I am going to make some progress as I need to allow two minutes for the wind-up, otherwise it would be frowned upon by Madam Deputy Speaker. My hon. Friends the Members for Hazel Grove (Mr Wragg) and for Bolton West (Chris Green) talked about the need to prioritise brownfield over green spaces. That is already in the NPPF of course. We will look at whether we need to reinforce that message....

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Housing: Forests (6 Feb 2018)

Dominic Raab: The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) affords strong protection to ancient woodland, and aged or veteran trees.
