Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Planning Permission: Urban Areas (29 Nov 2022)

Lucy Frazer: The Government has made clear that in the first instance, main town centre uses such as retail, should be located in town centres.

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Chinese Embassy (25 Nov 2022)

Lucy Frazer: A planning application for a new Chinese Embassy is currently before the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. As the Secretary of State has a quasi-judicial role in the planning system, it would not be appropriate to comment on the merits of the proposal in case it were to come before Ministers in the future. In line with the practice of successive administrations, details of internal discussions...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: First Time Buyers: Government Assistance (23 Nov 2022)

Lucy Frazer: Getting people on the housing ladder realising their dream of owning a home has been a long held conservative value. I am proud that since Spring 2010, over 800,000 households have been helped to purchase a home through Government-backed schemes, including Right to Buy and shared ownership.

The NPPF asks all local councils to set design standards in design guides and codes that reflect local character and design...

Lucy Frazer: The Government is clear that we must tackle the practice of 'land banking', where developers buy up land and leave it undeveloped for years, with no sign of building work taking place.
