Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (8th Day): Amendment 277 (18 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Taylor of Stevenage, has raised a fundamental issue of human rights and dignity. I am really surprised that the Government have so far failed to repeal the Vagrancy Act. It just needs to be deleted from the statute book. Perhaps the Minister can give us the assurance that it will be. If he cannot, and if the noble Baroness, Lady Taylor of Stevenage, wishes...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (8th Day): Amendment 260A (18 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, building safety remediation comes back again. I thank the noble Earl, Lord Lytton, and the noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham, for sharing their expert knowledge and understanding of the plight of leaseholders as a consequence of the building safety debacle exposed by the Grenfell Tower tragedy. The noble Earl has put a huge amount of time, energy and expertise into seeking an...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (8th Day): Amendment 259 (18 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, at this stage—the beginning of another day on Report—I remind the House of my relevant interests as a councillor in Kirklees and a vice-president of the Local Government Association. I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Barran, who is standing in today for the noble Baroness, Lady Scott of Bybrook, to whom I wish godspeed and a full recovery. As the noble Baroness, Lady Barran,...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 248 (13 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, this may be the fourth occasion in the House on which I have debated pavement licensing. There is obviously a reason for that; we have not got the regulations quite right. As the noble Lord, Lord Holmes, raised in his amendment, there is a natural conflict between the use of the public highway as an extension of a licensed premises, restaurant or café, and the use of it by the...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 247 (13 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords for this constructive debate. It has been wonderful to hear expertise from across the House on such an important issue as environmental protections. I remind everybody that this is day seven on Report of the levelling-up Bill, which we began in January with Second Reading, and this is the first time this issue has been brought to the attention of the House....

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 242 (13 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, here we are on day seven of Report, and up pops yet another amendment on a completely new topic. It is so out of scope that, to debate it, the Long Title of the Bill has also to be amended. The noble Lord, Lord Moylan, has chosen to discuss, via the theme of ULEZ, the London devolution deal. How much better if he had done so during the very long section of debate on the Bill devoted...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day): Amendment 235 (13 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: I thank the noble Earl, Lord Howe, who is not in his place, for the long and careful response he gave to the amendment on planning fees, tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham, and me. It is a practical amendment to ensure that council tax payers are not required to subsidise applications from developers, and to provide an effective and efficient planning service. Unfortunately, I...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day): Amendment 233 (13 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, I ought to start by saying that I am a member of the Woodland Trust and therefore protection of woodland is very important to me, so I wholly support the noble Baroness, Lady Young of Old Scone, in her amendment. Ancient woodland is ancient. The definition of ancient woodland is that it has been around since the 1600s or even longer. The combined effect of a copse or even a small...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day): Amendment 231 (13 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, the important amendments that the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh of Pickering, has tabled to the Bill demonstrate how wide-ranging the Bill is. These amendments themselves could benefit from an individual Bill, because they are so critical to the future both of development and of environment preservation in our country. To be able to spend only 30 to 40 minutes debating them is a...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day): Amendment 230A (13 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, this is a good day. I thank all noble Lords who have worked hard with the Government to get to a place where there is landscape protection for those areas of outstanding natural beauty and national parks. I am fortunate to live in a place where I can easily get to three great national parks—the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and the Peak District—so I particularly...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day): Amendment 225 (13 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: Before the noble Earl sits down—I thank him for the reply—can he just confirm that the Government are willing for council tax payers to subsidise planning applications, which are often very big applications? That is often where the fee discrepancy occurs, with very big housing developments or commercial developments. Is the noble Earl happy for the Government to see council tax payers...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day): Amendment 225 (13 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, I remind the House of my relevant interests as a councillor and a vice-president of the Local Government Association. Throughout the debates on the Bill, we have all agreed on the importance of having a plan-led approach to development. Therefore, an effective local authority planning service is key to implementing timely decisions on planning applications. The House of Commons...

New Homes - Question (12 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, I have relevant interests in this Question. Councils’ local plans incorporate their share of the national housing targets. Can the Minister explain how national housing targets can be achieved when more than 60% of local councils do not have an up-to-date local plan?

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 220 ( 6 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh, for raising what is often a bone of contention among residents of new properties where those properties have been built adjacent to businesses, often hospitality businesses. They are the latecomers. but they suddenly expect the business to comply with their requirements and not the other way round. I will give one example that may...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 217 ( 6 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, before I make a few comments about swift bricks, I thought I would address my remarks to the two amendments in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Lansley. He is making a case for large sites that take a number of years to build out and where, because of a change in circumstances, there may need to be a substantial change in the nature of the remainder of the site. I have a bit of...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 202A ( 6 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, I added my name to Amendment 271A in the name of the Minister and thank him for the meeting we had to discuss it. My Liberal Democrat colleague, Councillor Gerald Vernon-Jackson, promoted the change in his work as chair of the LGA’s culture, tourism and sport board. I am glad the Minister recognised the role he played in bringing this amendment to the Floor of the House. This is...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (6th Day): Amendment 195 ( 6 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham, was absolutely right when he introduced his amendment in saying that this is the most important part of the Bill and is at the heart of the housing debate we have been having. I am very fortunate to be following the noble Lord, Lord Deben, who has given this whole debate a new dimension and a new focus for our thoughts, on whether we should be...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (6th Day): Amendment 193 ( 6 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, I just wish to speak to Amendment 199 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Berkeley. I repeat my relevant interests at the outset: I am a councillor and a vice-president of the Local Government Association. Unfortunately, our wonderful expert on all things transport, my noble friend Lady Randerson, is unable attend this morning but what I shall say comes after having discussed this...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 191 ( 4 Sep 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, I think it was the noble Lord, Lord Deben, who said that our planet faces an existential crisis. We must ensure that we take every opportunity to deliver policies and practices that will enable us to tackle the climate change emergency. The noble Lord, Lord Lansley, was right to say that the beauty of Amendment 191 is that it deals with national policy—it could and should be in...
