Housing and Planning Act 2016 receives Royal Assent 12th May 2016

Ending an extended “ping pong” session between the House of Commons and the House of Lords, Lord Kerslake revoked the last opposition amendment and the Act, which contains key provisions relating to the introduction of the VRTB and deregulatory measures including asset freedoms, was passed into law.

But it’s all in the detail…

It’s important to remember that although the Bill has received Royal Assent, most of the key provisions contained in the Act will only take effect through secondary legislation and regulatory amendments. The timing (and detail!) of those regulations is therefore critical.

We’ll be in touch

We will be providing more detail on key aspects of the Act shortly, including the dates of events we will be holding in London, Manchester and Birmingham to discuss the key implications of the Act.
