Introducing the new ‘Right to Regenerate’: local people to be given a new right to take over unused council-owned buildings.

Meaning more new homes, businesses and community assets — whatever a community wants to see in their area. (1/4)
Fill in a simple form, give the council an opportunity to make an argument against sale, and if there isn’t one, you get first refusal to buy it at market price. My piece in today’s @TheSun👇

Millions of people will now be able to buy that empty property, unused garage or parcel of land and turn it into something good for them and their community. (3/4)

🏘 New housing starts more than doubled compared to the previous quarter
🏡 Completions have almost tripled (1/4) Image
We extended planning permission deadlines and site working hours so that builders, architects and developers have been able to keep working, while following public health advice.

This has protected millions of jobs, from builders, through to estate agents and carpenters. (2/4) Image

1. As the Prime Minister said earlier – new measures will take effect from Thursday – the latest guidance is available online: gov.uk/guidance/new-n…

I know many people will have questions – here are answers to some key ones for @MHCLG:
2. Q: Can I still move house?

A: Yes – the housing market will remain open throughout this period. Everyone should continue to play their part in reducing the spread of the virus by following the current guidance.
3. Q: Are the mortgage holidays ending?

A: No – the mortgage payment holidays will no longer end today and there will be further information published by the FCA on Monday.

1. Today I'm announcing we will provide 6,000 supported homes for vulnerable rough sleepers taken off the streets during the pandemic.

It will be backed by £433 million of government funding with 3,300 homes made available in next 12 months

2. This is an unprecedented commitment – the most ambitious of its kind and the single biggest injection of specialist accommodation since the rough sleepers initiative began in the 1990s.

This will be completely transformative & change the lives of thousands of rough sleepers.
3. During this pandemic, we have offered accommodation to over 90% of known rough sleepers in order to help them stay safe.

This has been possible because of an incredible effort by the government, councils and charities.

Thank you to everyone that has made this possible.
