Housing and Planning Bill: Report on Committee Stage

A House of Commons library briefing paper has been issued relating to Housing and Planning Bill: Report on Committee Stage.

This briefing paper relates to the Housing and Planning Bill 2015-16 which was considered during seventeen sittings of the Public Bill Committee between 10 November and 10 December 2015. Report Stage took place on 5 January 2015.

The paper confirms that a number of technical Government amendments were made to parts 6 (Planning in England) and 7 of the Bill (compulsory purchase), and a new clause and schedule were added to enable the Mayor of London or a combined authority to prepare a development plan document where a local authority had failed to make progress on such a document.
