Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I would rather not give way because many hon. Members want to speak and we are short of time. The Bill needs further measures to clarify the true costs of neighbourhood plans. Currently, councils receive £5,000 for each neighbourhood plan area designated, and £20,000 for each neighbourhood plan referendum, but those figures are the same regardless of the number of electors or the complexity...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I am very interested in the hon. Gentleman’s previous employment, but people always complain about restrictions. Our job is to balance the complaints of the developer against what is best for a local community. I am yet to see firm statistical evidence of how much pre-commencement planning conditions restrict building.

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I will give way one more time, but we really must get on.

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I thank the Minister for his intervention but I would like to see real statistical evidence. Are we trying to solve a problem that does not exist? We all have anecdotal evidence, but perhaps in Committee we will see more evidence. It is my experience that some developers welcome pre-commencement planning conditions because they enable planning permission to be secured without finalising the...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I am afraid I need to move on because many hon. Members wish to speak and the hour is late. [Interruption.] There are lots of Government Members. The Bill makes provision for permitted development to be recorded on the planning register. Given the existing pressures and further commitments in the Bill— I have mentioned the wider question of resourcing—I should like the Minister to...

Local Government Reform — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] ( 6 Sep 2016)

Teresa Pearce: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I am standing in for my hon. Friend the Member for Easington (Grahame M. Morris), who is very disappointed that he cannot be here today. I thank the hon. Member for Elmet and Rothwell (Alec Shelbrooke) for initiating this important debate and for his thought-provoking report—I would expect nothing less than thought provocation...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jul 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I, too, welcome the new Ministers, and particularly the new Housing Minister. We were both elected in 2010, we are both London MPs, and we have probably both seen our postbag grow with the housing crisis in London. Last week the National Audit Office reported on the Government’s progress in selling public land for 160,000 new homes. Will the Minister confirm that although the aim was to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jul 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I thank the Minister for his response; perhaps he will want to write to me about the following question as well. The Department’s forecast shows that to meet the commitment to sell land for more than 160,000 homes, the Government will need to dispose of five times as much land as they did last year. The National Audit Office says that there is no mechanism to monitor the number of houses...

Affordable Housing: London — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (14 Jun 2016)

Teresa Pearce: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Brentford and Isleworth (Ruth Cadbury) for securing this debate and for her vivid description of the challenges facing London. Those descriptions were mirrored by what was said by Members from all across London—by my hon. Friends the Members for Hammersmith (Andy Slaughter), for Westminster...

Housing and Planning Bill: Reduction of payment by agreement (11 May 2016)

Teresa Pearce: As we are all aware, the Government suffered a further defeat in the other place last night. As I said in our debate on Monday, after a string of defeats and concessions, some of the sharpest edges have been knocked off the Bill, but it remains an extraordinary and extreme piece of legislation, and a missed opportunity. Since 2010, homelessness and rough sleeping have more than doubled,...

Domestic Violence Refuges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (11 May 2016)

Teresa Pearce: Will the Minister expand on what “shortly” means? Is it like when the Whips say, “Vote shortly”? When the Government say “shortly”, it can sometimes mean quite a long time. Is it weeks or months? What is it?

Domestic Violence Refuges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (11 May 2016)

Teresa Pearce: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. You have presided over a disciplined debate with a clear purpose: to question the effectiveness of the policies that the Government are pursuing and to alert the Minister to what I hope are the unintended consequences of the policies as we all understand them. I begin by paying tribute to all those who work or have worked in...

Housing and Planning Bill: Planning permission: provision of starter homes ( 9 May 2016)

Teresa Pearce: We began scrutinising this Bill last autumn, and it was bad at that point. After a string of concessions and 18 defeats, some of its harshest aspects have now been amended, but it still presents a missed opportunity to solve the housing crisis. Since 2010, homelessness and rough sleeping have more than doubled, house prices and private rents have risen dramatically, and the housing benefit...

Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Hinkley Point C Power Station (22 Apr 2016)

Teresa Pearce: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, what assessment she has made of the potential merits of raising the level of support offered through the Contract for Difference for Hinkley Point C as a result of low wholesale energy prices.
