Housing and Planning Bill update 10/12/2015

The Public Bill Committee concluded its scrutiny of the Housing and Planning Bill on 10 December 2015. Report and Third reading in the House of Commons has been scheduled for 5 January 2016, following which the Bill will pass to the House of Lords.


A number of amendments have been made to the parts of the Bill relating to planning, compulsory purchase and the private rented sector. The only significant changes to Part 4 (Social Rented Housing) are two new clauses and schedules requiring most new local authority tenancies to be for a fixed term of 2 to 5 years, and amending rights of succession.


We've produced a Briefing to update members on the debate on Part 4.
