Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 241A (20 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, I have two amendments in my name that I wish to speak to briefly. However, prior to that, I say that my noble friend Lord Stunell made an important point about how all the amendments here are trying to resolve the issue of what is affordable. So-called affordable homes are those built by the commercial sector as part of a development—a planning obligation—yet the challenge for...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 240 (20 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: I apologise to the Minister, but could she explain to the House where the balance lies between commercial interests and their development, and the policies that she has rightly described as very positive and as needing to be put into place? In my experience, the balance is currently in the hands of the commercial interests.

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 240 (20 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, I was reflecting that we have barely mentioned levelling up in the last two Committee days. Yet my noble friend has helpfully raised the importance of relating everything we do to the levelling-up missions, which include references to accessible public transport in order to enable accessibility to employment. That was timely. My name is on Amendment 468, which is about accessible...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 239A (18 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, this excellent amendment, probing how we link national planning, regional strategic planning and local planning by including planning by private companies whose role is regulated by government, poses a very interesting question. I will give a couple of practical examples. In my area on the M62 corridor, National Highways —or Highways England, another of the forms it has taken over...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 225 (18 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, my noble friend Lord Stunell is the expert on neighbourhood planning, and there is nothing I can add to what he has just expounded. I also agree with what the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman of Ullock, said. In particular, my noble friend raised important questions about the statement by the Secretary of State last week about future planning proposals that will affect this Bill....

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 217 (18 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Holmes, is quite right to raise the issue of accessible and inclusive design. Everyone benefits where design is accessible and inclusive for everyone, so all planners and all local plan strategies should bear that in mind as a prior consideration. The noble Lord has our complete support. We must say two things to the Government that the noble Lord, Lord Lansley,...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 216A (18 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: I have a query, and I congratulate the noble Baroness on so carefully explaining the long list of amendments. On the first amendment, Amendment 216A, is that a new requirement for local planning authorities? If so, then surely it should fall under the new burdens agreement between the Government and local authorities and should therefore be funded by the Government.

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 216A (18 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: And if it was not a new burden, it would not be?

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 216A (18 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: I would be grateful if the Minister could write and let me know.

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 213A (18 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman of Ullock, has raised a very important issue about end-of-life care and how the planning system can be encouraged to prepare for the needs that will arise in the not-too-distant future. It is an argument that we on these Benches absolutely support; I will just expand it ever so slightly by saying that whenever there is a big allocation for a housing...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 207 (18 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: I thank the Minister for his explanation of what is already in the policy and how it is going to be strengthened, and the national planning policy guidance. However, so far that has not brought forth anything like the numbers that are needed, so perhaps the Minister will be able to explain how that policy—which is very worthy and which I support—can be put into practice?

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 207 (18 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, this group of amendments exposes the conundrum at the heart of planning for housing. At this point, I repeat my interests, as in the register, as being a councillor in Kirklees, with its up-to-date local plan, and as a vice-president of the Local Government Association. My noble friend Lord Stunell is of course right to say that the simple statement of a number of new house builds...

Respiratory Syncytial Virus Immunisation - Question (28 Mar 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, in the last week, the Minister may have seen financial reports about the challenges facing some vaccine manufacturers, now that the Covid demand is much reduced. What do the Government intend to do to ensure that we have capacity in the UK to develop new vaccines at scale in response to this and any other future challenge?

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 198 (27 Mar 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: It is with trepidation that I follow the last two speakers, the noble Baronesses, Lady Jones and Lady Fox. I will say just one small thing about the green belt. The green belt, as part of local plan making, is reviewed and, as appropriate, areas are taken out of the green belt for housebuilding and development. That is what happens. It happens at the right time and place when there is proper...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 196A (27 Mar 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, how do I follow that? I will not, as it is dangerous territory. This is a very interesting and important debate because it is about creating part of the hierarchy of a plan-led process. At the moment, we have quite a mixed pattern across England. Obviously, London has the ability to make a spatial strategy policy and plan; so do just some of the metro combined authorities, as they...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 196A (27 Mar 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My experience is that that was not quite how it worked. In West Yorkshire, Harrogate—which is just north of Leeds—was included, even though it is in North Yorkshire, because it is part of what they call the “golden triangle”. I think it is a challenge, and I hope the Government will just decide which boundaries they use—I presume it will be local authority boundaries, because that...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 185A (27 Mar 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: I just want to explore this further, if the Minister will agree to it. The question from the noble Lord, Lord Lansley, is at the heart of this issue. Where there is an existing, up-to-date local plan, why should that not have primacy over the national development management policies, because it will have taken cognisance of those in developing the local plan? Can the Minister help me here? In...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 185A (27 Mar 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, this has been an excellent debate on the conflicts that will inevitably exist between the national development management policies and local plans. I thank my noble friend for pointing out in great detail the difficulties that may arise. At the heart of this is the fact that, at the moment, we have no idea what will be included in the NDMP. Frankly, that is fairly critical as to...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 184ZA (27 Mar 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, we have had some very powerful speeches in support of incorporating local nature recovery plans into the planning system. I wholeheartedly agree with my noble friends Lady Parminter and Lord Teverson, and others such as the noble Baronesses, Lady Willis of Summertown and Lady Jones of Whitchurch. They made powerful speeches, so I do not need to add to their arguments. However, I...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (22 Mar 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: My Lords, this is probably one of the key groups of amendments on planning in the Bill, as it sets out the strategic framework under which local plans will be created and planning applications will be determined. The noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham, started us on the right track by saying that we believe in a plan-led system; the question is, “Who leads the plans?” Which one is going to...
