Baroness Byford

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What systems and procedures they have put in place to monitor local authority compliance with the instruction in point 9 of the revised PPG3 to allow for growth of one-person households. [HL3022]

Lord Falconer of Thoroton

The Government are conducting research to consider the implementation of the policies set out in Planning Policy Guidance Note 3Housing (PPG3). The research will report the progress made by local authorities in assessing and planning for the housing needs of their communities. Housing Statistics 2001 provides information on the number of bedrooms in flats and houses completed in the English regions as a percentage of all additional dwellings. Local authorities should also report publicly on the variety of types and sizes of housing being provided in their areas.
