To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, with reference to the written statement of 28 November 2014 by the Minister of State for Housing and Planning, HCWS50, on support for small scale developers, custom and self-builders, when he plans to publish revised planning guidance.
The changes the Government has made to Section 106 thresholds to encourage house building and cut the cost of new housing are a change in national policy. Associated planning guidance was also updated at the same time.
Planning guidance is kept under review and is updated as required, and we are open to representations on any practical areas where further assistance is needed to help facilitate the implementation of new policy.
I also refer my hon. Friend to the answer of 12 February, to Question 223174, which outlines the rationale for our policy changes.
