Housing and planning bill briefings

The government’s housing and planning Bill started its progress through parliament on 13 October 2015.

It started in the House of Commons and in the New Year will move to the House of Lords.

There are a number of provisions in the bill which will directly affect London’s boroughs, their housing stock and their tenants. These provisions include: starter homes, right to buy, high value sales, high income social tenants – mandatory rents and planning.

London Councils have briefed MPs on all stages of the bill on the issues above and plan to do so as the Bill moves into the House of Lords. See the briefings we have sent out below
