Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Income Tax: Low Incomes (20 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: Council tax levels are decided by local authorities, taking account of their local circumstances. The Government maintains a referendum threshold so that voters can have the final say over excessive increases. The threshold strikes a balance between giving local authorities the flexibility to generate income for local services and protecting residents. Councils are also required to put in...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Leasehold (20 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: According to the English Housing Survey 2021-22, 536,000 leasehold dwellings had a lease of between 99 and 125 years at the time of purchase (Annex Table 3.5). English Housing Survey 2021-22 (pdf, 6020.2KB)

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Leasehold: Reform (20 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill will make it easier and cheaper for leaseholders to extend their lease or buy the freehold. The Bill includes a statutory right for qualifying leaseholders to obtain a 990-year lease extension, or to buy their freehold, on payment of a premium. In doing so they can obtain a peppercorn ground rent. In calculating the premium, the value of ground rent is...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Leasehold (20 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The Right to Manage is a statutory process requiring all qualifying non-participating leaseholders to be invited to become a member of the Right to Manage company using a prescribed “notice inviting participation”. The company serves these notices on the leaseholders with no input from the freeholder. Leaseholders wishing to take forward a claim will need to obtain the title documents for...

East Midlands Combined County Authority Regulations 2024 – Baroness Scott of Bybrook. Orders and regulations

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, we have listened carefully to local authorities about the pressures they are facing. That is why, in January, we announced additional measures worth over £600 million. Taking into account the recently announced local government finance settlement, that makes available up to £64.7 billion, an increase of 7.5% in cash terms on last year. The department continually monitors the...

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, for many years we have had a cap on council tax increases. It remains at 2.99% for the general fund, with 2% extra for councils that want more money for social care funding. However, the department is establishing an expert panel to advise local government and the department on local government financial sustainability into the future. The panel will include the LGA and the Office...

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I agree with much of what my noble friend said. In December 2022, the Government ruled out reform of the local government finance system in this Parliament in response to the sector calling for stability and certainty from local government. However, this Government are committed to reforming the local government funding landscape in the next Parliament.

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I repeat that we have said that we will look at funding in the next Parliament. There is an 18% increase in budgets per dwelling in the most deprived areas, compared to the least deprived. Through the settlement, places such as Birmingham are getting a lot more money.

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The noble Baroness is right to say that the current household support fund runs out on 31 March. However, the Government continue to keep all existing programmes under review in the usual way.

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: As I said, in the next Government we will look at all these local government financing issues. We agree that that is long overdue, but the sector itself did not want that to happen in 2022.

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I absolutely agree with my noble friend. We made changes to local government financing in January, and we listened to local government and its priorities: £500 million of the £600 million extra that was given is going into social care.

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The Government do appreciate what local government can do, and it is not just Labour local government that is delivering this innovation and great services for local people. At this point, I should thank local government for everything it does. As I said earlier, we listen to local authorities all the time, which is why we put in £600 million more in January.

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The right reverend Prelate is absolutely right: local government is asking for reform of the whole system, but it is also asking for certainty for future years. Recognising the importance of this, the Government intend to return to multi-year settlements in the next Parliament when circumstances allow.

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I have already agreed that this will happen in the next Parliament under a Conservative Government. However, as we have heard from the noble Baroness opposite, not all councils have stopped non-statutory services. Many of them are running their businesses very efficiently and keeping all those services going.

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Cheshunt Lakeside: Insolvency (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: Local authorities are independent bodies and Broxbourne Borough Council's recovery of debt is in the first instance a matter for the council. Nonetheless, the Government stands ready to speak to any council that has concerns about its ability to manage its finances or faces pressures for which it has not planned. Homes England is working closely with the insolvency administrators for Cheshunt...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Housing: Government Assistance (13 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: Funding to local authorities for housing related support is through the Local Government Finance Settlement. The final Local Government Finance Settlement for 2024-25 makes available up to £64.7 billion, an increase in Core Spending Power of up to £4.5 billion or 7.5% in cash terms on 2023-24. Having listened to the views of local government, on 24 January the Government announced...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Housing: Construction (12 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The Government wants to see a diverse and competitive housebuilding sector. We are aware of the challenges that small and medium sized (SME) housebuilders are facing, which is why we are supporting them through the £1.5 billion Levelling Up Home Building Fund (LUHBF) and the £1 billion ENABLE Build guarantee programme. LUHBF provides loans to SMEs to help build around 42,000 homes across...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Social Rented Housing: Foreign Nationals (12 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: Using English Housing Survey data, we estimate that in 2021-22, 6.8% of social households outside London had a household reference person who was not a UK or Irish national. For London, this figure is 14.7%.
