Consideration of the HPA 2016 and it's implications
This session provides landlord and tenant practitioners with a useful reminder, or introduction to, the Housing and Planning Act 2016 which has made far-reaching changes to housing policy and the planning system within the United Kingdom.
Divided into two manageable sections, this course will provide an invaluable overview of the sections of the Housing and Planning Act 2016 which have been implemented, or not, namely parts 1, 3, 4 and 6.
Delivered by barrister Rachel Coyle of The 36 Group, part one will consider Part 6 of the Housing and Planning Act 2016 which concerns Neighbourhood Development Plans and Orders. It also addresses Part 1 and briefly, for reasons which become clear in the webinar, Parts 3 and 4.
Sections of the Housing and Planning Act 2016 which relate to starter homes, extended Right to Buy and secure tenancies (Section 81A Housing Act 1985) will also be examined.
The remainder of Part 6 and Part 7 of the Housing and Planning Act 2016 will be dealt with in part two of the webinar. Local planning, planning obligations and their implications will also be discussed in some detail.
Whilst this two-part webinar is intended as an overview only, it is ideal for landlord and tenant practitioners who, when faced with a tricky situation, require guidance in terms of where to look in the statute for an answer to their problem.
