Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Affordable Housing and Holiday Accommodation ( 5 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: We have announced a short-term let use class which will apply to properties that are not someone's sole or main home. Existing short-term lets will be reclassified to the new use class. Permitted development rights will allow properties to change use from a short-term let to a dwellinghouse and vice versa. Where there is an issue, the local planning authority may remove this right and require...

Domestic Violence Refuges: Charities and Local Government - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The Government are committed to ensuring that all victims receive the support they need when they when they need it. Councils in England have a duty to provide support within safe accommodation to victims and their children under the Domestic Abuse Act 2021. Since April 2021, the Government have provided more than £507 million to councils across the country, including £129.7 million for the...

Domestic Violence Refuges: Charities and Local Government - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, the Government are supporting local authorities on this issue and they have given the money required, as I said. Yes, it is not good enough, so we have set up a national expert steering group, which is co-chaired by my colleague, Felicity Buchan, and the Domestic Abuse Commissioner. They will closely monitor this and have agreed a protocol to support further local authorities in...

Domestic Violence Refuges: Charities and Local Government - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The noble Lord is absolutely right. I remember that, many years ago when I was in local government, children used to sit in the corner and nobody took any notice of them. Those things have changed. Of course, some victims of domestic abuse are children, in addition to the females—or males, depending on who is being abused.

Domestic Violence Refuges: Charities and Local Government - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My noble friend is absolutely right, and I thank all local authorities for everything they do. Interestingly, nearly 75% of local authorities say that they are spending more and doing much more than they did a few years ago in this regard. That is great, and I thank them for what they are doing. Yes, we should be supporting them and not always knocking them.

Domestic Violence Refuges: Charities and Local Government - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, in the last couple of months we have given £600 million extra to local authorities because we understand the pressures they are under. We are keeping an eye on those pressures, and we encourage all local authorities which have difficulties with their budgets to talk to us early on, so that we can work with them. Local authority budgets have been increased by 7.5% this year, and as...

Domestic Violence Refuges: Charities and Local Government - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I would be more than happy to meet the noble Baroness to learn about that, and I thank her for everything she is doing in her county. As recently as this weekend, we heard so much about violence against women. The Home Office is taking this issue extremely seriously and a large amount of money is going into extra police training, particularly on tackling domestic abuse. Some £3.3 million has...

Domestic Violence Refuges: Charities and Local Government - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The charitable sector is a really important partner in this. That has been noted in the amount of money given to police and crime commissioners to tackle this issue, part of which is spent with charities, other stakeholders and community groups. This Government have supported charities through this very difficult crisis, in particular with energy costs. We are totally committed to supporting...

Domestic Violence Refuges: Charities and Local Government - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I absolutely accept that. We need to keep that in mind when we look at domestic violence.

Domestic Violence Refuges: Charities and Local Government - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, we always need to consider the way in which the world is moving forward. Abuse moves with it, so we must keep considering the online world as technology and people’s lives change.

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Inter Faith Network: Finance ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: On 19 January, the Secretary of State wrote to the Inter Faith Network (IFN) informing them that he was minded to withdraw the offer of funding for 2023/24. This is in view of a member of the Muslim Council of Britain being appointed to the IFN’s Board of Trustees. Representations made by the IFN were considered by the Secretary of State. This included the role of their trustees and the...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Housing Ombudsman Service: Landlords ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I refer the Noble Lord to my oral response on 18 January 2024 (Official Report, HoL, Volume 835, Column 471). The Renters (Reform) Bill allows the Government to select a scheme through an open competition, or appoint a provider to deliver a designated scheme. As the Minister of State for Levelling Up announced at Commons Committee stage of the Bill, the Government’s preference at this time...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Peers: Correspondence (29 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I apologise for the delay in responding to my Noble Lords’ correspondence. The department attaches great importance to the effective and timely handling of correspondence from Noble peers. A response issued on 27 February 2024.

Housebuilding - Question (28 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: We welcome the CMA’s final report, following its full market study into housebuilding. In 2022, the Secretary of State wrote to the CMA, supporting the suggestion of a full market study, the first since 2008. The Government will now take away and carefully consider these findings and recommendations, and formally respond within 90 days. The CMA’s recommendations can help industry, the...

Housebuilding - Question (28 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: As I have said, we will carefully consider all the recommendations and findings from the report. Our National Planning Policy Framework means that councils must have local plans in place to deliver more homes in the right places and of the right type that are required in that particular community. As part of the recent consultation on changes to the National Planning Policy Framework, we have...

Housebuilding - Question (28 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The noble Lord has some interesting ideas in this area, particularly about the large housebuilders, which seem to have controlled the market. That is why we are putting a lot of support into small and medium-sized housebuilders. As for the Oliver Letwin report, we will look at everything once we have got this report and when we start to work on it, and we will be bringing out further...

Housebuilding - Question (28 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: As I have said previously, SMEs play a critical role in housebuilding and in the housing market in this country. Through the Levelling-up and Regeneration Act, we have made changes to the planning system that will support SMEs to build more homes by making the planning process easier to navigate, faster and more predictable. The Government have recently announced policies that will support...

Housebuilding - Question (28 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, let me make it clear that we have delivered 2.5 million extra homes in the last 14 years. Since 2018, we have also delivered the four highest annual building numbers for 30 years, and we are on target for 1 million more homes in this Parliament. We are delivering, but we have been through an economic crisis. We are coming out of it, and we will start to build more homes in the future.

Housebuilding - Question (28 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The noble Baroness is right and, like me, she understands this system. Since about 2015, there have been more councils that are not taking control. I believe that that is about council priorities and not about money, because not all of them have. It is up to the developers and the local planning authority to agree the appropriate funding, delivery and maintenance arrangements for these public...

Housebuilding - Question (28 Chw 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My noble friend brings up a very important point. The Government are already committed to improving redress for new-build home buyers when things go wrong. The Building Safety Act includes provision for the new homes ombudsman scheme to become statutory and to provide dispute resolution to determine complaints by buyers of new-build homes against their developers.
