News story released on the GOV.UK website from Department for Communities and Local Government and Brandon Lewis MP, headlines Landmark Housing and Planning Bill receives Royal Assent.
New measures to help more people buy their own home and get houses built faster became law last Friday 13th May.
The Act sets out a clear determination from the government to keep the country building while giving hard working families every opportunity to unlock the door to home ownership.
It will give housebuilders and decision-makers the tools and confidence to provide more homes and further streamline the planning system to accelerate their delivery.
The measures include underpinning the voluntary Right to Buy agreement with housing associations, supporting the doubling of the number of custom and self-build homes by 2020, tackling rogue landlords and speeding up the neighbourhood planning process.
